Slide Gear rack maintenance

Should you use any silicone spray or slide lube on gear rack ? I see different issues on this.

Ideally you want to use something that's dry during or drys after application, so dirt and grime doesn't stick to it.

While I love silicone spray for lots of things, I prefer 'Slideout Lube' for the slide mechanism because it is dry when applied and it's designed for that application.

I use a solid film (dry) lubricant, Moly based. One application will last for six months. Superior protection against rust/corrosion. It's a dry lubricant so it doesn't collect debris.

You can find it at any auto parts store or Amazon under CRC or Loctite brand names.
