do you have to open up both sides (shields) of the bearing?
A couple of things. In ALL of my Nitro Cars, I always use Rubber Sealed bearing to keep the Dirt out. In my Electric Car I was told to remove the seals/shield for less drag. Problem is now they are way too high maintenance and I really didn't notice any improvement by removing the seals. I'm going to replace them with Teflon sealed bearings for a good happy medium of drag and maintenance.
I also tried some Mobil 1 for bearing oil, but I feel it is too heavy. Going to buy some Trinity Royal oil as most of you guys seem to like it.
