oiling the bearings
I used to always clean my cars with a nitro spray after a full day at the track.
The nitro spray will wash away the lube in the bearings though.
A friend of mine showed me this new silicone based spray from Home Depot.
I cleaned the cars with some Simple Green/denatured alcohol, and lightly sprayed the inside and out side of the bearings with this new silicone spray, and the bearings are like new. It takes just a very small amount of this spray to work, but it works amazing.
So now all I do is spray the cars down with the Simple Green mixture, use a compressor to blow them off, and then lightly spray all of the bearings with the silicone spray.
Be sure and do not spray any one way bearings, because they will not work if they are lubed.
One good thing about this spray is it will not collect dirt or gum up the bearings.
If you try this, be sure and get the silicone based spray.
