Bearing Oil

What type of oil for bearings? All of the plastic dust covers are gone. How often do I need to re-clean and re-oil them?

I clean my bearings after every race day.
Hope that helps,

Even the ones in the diff? That seems a little excessive and time consuming.

I could see cleaning the wheel bearings after every race, but all of them?

Not if the diffs are sealed. Those get done about every two full weeks of running, when I rebuild the diffs.
Hope that helps,

Yokomo Friction Zero is second to none, but difficult to get a hold of.

Shook, what is a bearing cleaning procedure? Do you remove the seals, hit them with brake clean, then apply this oil?

Lets just say I buy xacto blades in bulk.....
So yea seals than clean with motro spray, or the electic rattler. It all just depends on how I feel....
When I do the 8th scale it is the elctric rattler for sure...
