Oily Cars?

Recommended Posts

As odd as it may be, I noticed some oil at the wheels and base of the plastic case. Saw them in my latest haul. Maybe for smoother rolling? What a Face

very interesting!!. In my experience, even though to the extent of rivets of the base or just for simple wheel swapped, all the wheels and the inside parts of the base are clean and dry.
any closed up pictures?

I believe hotwheels don't use any sort of grease cause these are meant for small kids who might lick the cars and all, sirim definitely won't like it. Hotwheels are known to be one of fastest because the way they design the axles, and for FTE wheels the axle's nickel plated.

That oil you see is because some kakak tengah makan Mcd while assembling the car. Razz
