How long are the flanged axle bearings supposed to last. It seems i'm getting one day out of them before the bearings become rough. I bought a small ultrasonic cleaner hoping to bring them back to life (clean, lube, etc) but I can't get rid of that rough, scratchy feel.

Any ideas? Are the teflon sealed ceramic bearings the way to go?

Steve, I can't tell you how long they are supposed to last.. but I know it should be longer then one run..... I have ran mine all season long and they are just now getting alittle "rough". I am really happy with how the crc bearings perform.

Thanks Mark, yeah I agree, the standard D ring seems to hold up better in Modified than the lightweight version. I will order some ceramic balls, I am also going to go to Kimbrough gears, they have more balls than PRS, and I think that will help as well. I also ordered some of these diff covers to see if that helps.

I tried the PRS gears to get a 92 spur and I didn't like them. I'm thinking about geting some of them covers also. I've seen a couple of people using them. My spur picks up alot of dirt.

of course this is a arguable subject, but in 20 years of racing 12th scale, I have never had a diff build up as smooth as when using Kimbrough spurs...
