I know this product is marketed for derby usage but it is much more versatile than that. For instance the lock on my neighbor's front door was terrible, it would grab the key and not let go. I'd have to spend 5 minutes gently jiggling the key to get it back out after letting their dog out while they were out of town because the tumblers were binding. Then I put a little "squirt" of graphite in there and now the lock functions perfectly, couldn't be smoother. And that's the exact sort of situation where a wet lube would work for a while then it would attract gunk and you'd be worse off than before but a dry lube like this is perfect.

Just be mindful that it will temporarily blacken skin/hands and may stain other things, same as pencil graphite. In other words, don't let it get on anything you wouldn't rub a pencil tip on.

I won't pretend to be a hot shot pinewood derby racer. I'm sure it is great for those cars too but I will let the guys who are clocking their cars before and after every step give you the skinny on performance there ;)

Update: This went into my boy's first pinewood derby car and I actually did do a little bit of clocking. BEFORE using this lubricant a flick of the wheels would cause them to spin for 3-4 seconds before stopping (on polished axles). After working in a bunch of this lubricant a flick of the wheels will have them spinning for 20-40 seconds! I think they are inconsistent because my boy did the work himself and some axles/wheels got more lubricant than others, not because the lubricant is inconsistent by the way, but clearly this is an amazing reduction in friction!!

I originally purchased this for use on my car door locks due to poor lubrication and the lack of an automatic car door opener. So I am constantly in and out of my car through the main lock on the driver's side door. Entering and locking the vehicle became a hassle so I initially went down to the auto store and picked up some basic wet, areosol lubricant for the lock. It worked fine for a few days, but then it returned the lock to the state it was in prior to its application. This stuff, however, works like a charm since I initially used it. Not only does it last longer, it lubricates the lock much better. It's so smooth. Hands down, some of the best stuff to lubricate locks with.

had a sticky door lock. heard that wd-40 would exacerbate the problem in the long run, and to seek out graphite instead. found this, ordered it, used it, fixed it. BAM!

Our car won the division using this graphite. I don't know how much credit goes to the graphite, but it probably didn't hurt. When we brought our car to the weigh-in, the den had several tubes available for everyone to use - so it may be worth checking with your scout leader to see if they'll be providing it.

Applied it liberally just as I was going to hand the car in at weigh-in. This plus getting the weight exactly to 5 oz made it easy for my son to take first place in his race.

I've read in David Meade's Pinewood Derby Speed Secrets book about the importance of proper lubrication. But still I used the regular graphite powder for my son's car wheels and axles for his first three derby seasons (Tiger through Bear). This year I decided to spring for the graphite with molybdenum additive and I'm glad I did. I have no empirical evidence that it's better than standard graphite but my son does have a 3rd place trophy this year from the district derby (3rd best time out of 95 cars) and first place in his pack (1st out of 30+ cars). So as far as I'm concerned, this stuff is great! Recommended.

This is a good powdered graphite for whatever your purposes are. I don't do the derby cars, so I can't say how it works for that. But I had used up my tube of graphite lube and like to keep some around. I've used this now and it works just like the non-moly kind if not better. The convenience of ordering online and delivery to my door was a plus.
