I was wondering where I can purchase RC Car Shock Oil. The same lube Dan Cohen uses, also would you recommend, edison cubes, if so what color, also is it a spray like crc, if not how do i apply it, a picture would also help
Most hobby stores that sell high end RC cars will have it. I put this on a few of my cubes and it made the feel of the cube extremely "slippery." It turns out one of them is now my main cube, however Ive been using CRC ever since so i cant say if the RC shock oil is to credit for this. I used 30 wt. oil and was pleased with it at first, attached is a picture of what I used.
I prefer CRC Silicone spray, but I use the shock oil for my big cubes. Spray propellants can tend to fuse pieces together (if I am too slow to work in the lube) and I don't want have to disassemble and reassemble a big cube to unfuse them.

The team associated (ae) shock oil is what i used. I just dropped some in side and worked it in similar to a silicone spray. Be careful as i put too much on and it dripped out on to the stickers (easier than silicone would), and was extremely oily and unpleasant to cube with. I re-stickered eventually, so proceed with caution. But I'd say that's just fine.
3-in-1 is not bad, although most other lubes are 9000x better.
I'd say go for jig-a-loo.
Don't have the time to read the thread, but I assume you're beginning. You'll have to be careful with jig-a-loo. It bonds plastic if you don't use it correctly. But then again, there's almost no risk with shock oil.
