NO! Forgetting all the what do they/don't they do, GT85 is by far and away better, I use it as air freshener, gives everything that fresh bike shop smell :D

Any proper oil can be used on electrical parts.

When in doubt, spray at a wall socket. If you need to turn the power back on, don't use the oil on electrical parts.

Water Displacer formula 40

Thats what's it's designe to do, displace water, not really a lubricant.

Actually i had this arguement the other day as where i work they push gt85 like it will save the world. I can confirm it is nto for chains. I have personally tested this for over a month. Resulting in a new chain and cassette as i recall.
Sure they are both light lubricants, i think the difference is the teflon in gt85 where wd40 is more oil based.

Only good for cables really.
