+1 I use the cheapo $1 bearings and just toss them. It's too much work to clean and re-use them. Cleaning them will also not create a brand new bearing. They will still be worn and therefore not worth using. I can only see cleaning them if they were expensive ceramic bearings. And I think those are pointless too.

Luckily my wife has 2 sisters in throwing distance of the nitropit so wife and kids are coming too, I had to get a big room and rent my own car, but its all worth it for 5 days of racing. It was not an easy sell but the right conversation at the right moments have given me the chance to go play with my cars for 5 days.

BTW when is the next off the hook way, way, way out in left field dreaux adventure coming??
