How often do you guys clean your bearings? What do you do to clean them?

Cheers,

RPM make a tool (bearing blaster I think it's called) that you can sit the bearing in and shoot motor spray into and it will blow the dirt out. I use a tool from Integy called the Indi Sparkle Parts cleaner. It's powered by 2 AA batts and it basically vibrates to shake dirt out of the bearings. Works pretty good.

Yeah, basically, it's a jewelry cleaner.

Guys,

I need your point of view, I plan to buy some ceramic ball bearings for the Pro4

Do you think it is worth buying them as the price is rather expensive...

thanks for your input

I find the stock one to be very friction free already...
if you're racing competatively then it may be worth the extra money.

The stock ones are pretty good already. Just make sure you clean them frequently to keep them rolling smoothly.

Hey guys, I wrecked last night after a few tumbles with the car and then smack right onto the boards.

The aftermath:


The "potential" fix:


I know it's a bit off center but it's just a prototype. I had an old Kyosho V One R that I sold about a year ago. And I kept the Lola Body Bumper set. Took the bumper and trimmed it a bit. Then drilled two holes big enough to fit the body post base. I'll let you guys know how it does this Sunday.

I just went thru my pro4 and rebuild it. Do you guys have trouble w/ the e-clip that goes on the spur retainer? Does it cause the spur to be off center as it spins?(wobble a bit)
