not trying to start anything but that makes no sense at all, seems like it would make the bearing last even shorter amount of time. when i read your first post i thought you were joking then i read this one and i guess your not. please explain.
if you land sideways (on the tips of the wheels) they put alot of pressure on the bearings and move the seals. only bearings i've found(that does work with) are those tko bearings that are double sealed.

kinda hard to explain really. all i do is take seals off. spray with air, pack with xray grease. and then bake them. my bearings take about 3 months with heavy use to even get kinda gritty.
then before every dirt run i bake them. if running in like wet grass or even grass is use a sticky silicon out of a tube onto both sides of the bearings.

i didnt mean to start anything just that one guy always comments on my opinions. have reported him and was told by admin that im not the only one thats complained about him.

ooo so the baking isnt to clean them its to re seat the seal to the proper setting to prevent the seal from falling off, when people read this it will make alot of sence people seen it as baking cleaned them lol. Its actually pretty smart idea.

in rc its good to have spares on hand n its also good to have a spare car. i think the smartest thing to do isfindsomeone selling a used car that u already have n use it as a spare parts car. that way ur not paying 500 bux for a new spare car n ull have parts

LMao !!!! Love it !

yeah basically everyone has there opinions but it wont hurt to carry all types of spares wheather it be bearings, hubs etc...If your lookin to spend i would but 2 kits for 2 reasons because if its a big break you can swap engines and put it in the second kit and swap radio trays and its solved which is way faster than changing a center diff bearing which i witnessed last week in a buddies xray. He missed a 30min main because 1 diff bearing took a crap and funny thing is he has 3 xrays but didnt bring them because wasnt exspecting a break but you never know what can happen. Honestly i dont have 2 kits or spares so if i break my day is more than likely over but if you got the money to buy alot of spares have atleast one of everything.

and I keep my old parts that aren't totally spent...

a guy breaks an arm before the main....he's happy to slap a used arm on his model to make the race...free and it gets the job done.

helping is happy....
