OK;
I was wondering because it would probably work even better in an ultrasonic cleaner like the integy. That really shakes a lot of crap out, even the carpet dingleberries. No shields at all? I might have to try that. Right now I really like the metal shielded ones from Losi in my TC3, because they are very low friction (not contact) and I put the side of the cage that's closed towards the outside and that combined with the shield makes a pretty barrier against the carpet. I still defuzz the axle whenever I can, but this is the best I've tried so far.

They are damaged by the time i get them out.LOL Keep in mind that not all shields are teflon material, some are metal others are rubber.

But for all the effort involved with removing and then trying to re-install them i just leave one side off all the time. And clean the bearings when needed. Flush soak dry and oil.

you still need to clean them and oil them just not as much plus they are expensive and are very sensitive to impacts thats why we only use them at big races for the xtra zip!
