I have been putting alot of greese and i think the grease is attracting dirt and making it bind up. Any way have it all clean and ready to put back together. I think i will just grease the pins that go inside the axel in the wheel hub. Does that sound right?


also will wd40 hurt my plastic?? I took the radio tray, engine, fuel tank out and pretty much blasted the rest with wd40 and got after it with a toothbrush. I heard of people doing this. Just wondering if too much might be bad for the plastics.

WD40 is fine... in fact, lubricating the hingepins in your suspension arms with this is a good idea.

Don't pack everthing in grease. The only places for grease are INSIDE the bearings and a tiny bit on the ring and pinion gears. (when I say inside, I mean the bearings themselves should be greased... not the area between them!)

I don't really understand this. Are you saying grease the inside of the bearing??? What do you mean not the space between them?? Just grease the inner diameter?? and outer diameter? and stay away from the groove that is the seal to the inside of the bearing??
