I ran my Mugen MTX3 for at least 2 years without a thrust bearing.
I had the same problem.
I changed clutch bells, thrust bearings, engines so many times, I gave up.
No one believed me that I was running without a thrust bearing until I pulled the clutch bell off and showed them
I have not had that problem sense though.
My MTX4R, and all of my 1/8th scale cars run a thrust bearing.
Still dont know why the MTX3 would not work with a thrust bearing even though I changed bearings, bells, engines many times.
If possible, find a good sealed flange bearing to keep the dirt out.
I say go with what ever works.
