DON'T use WD....leaves a yucky brown residue when it dries!!!!!

The Tamiya rubber seal bearings is a lot smoother than those black rubber seal bearing. Also, they are the only 100%maintance-free bearing in the market. My TA02 bearings are still as smooth as brand new.
But still more friction than the metal shield bearing with the shield removed from one side and running bearing oil!!!!!

unfortunately, where i live, those bearings are even rarer than the TA-02 kit itself!

Don't use this oil!!!! It ruins your bearings. 5W-30 motor oil is much better.

You are right, but the Tamiya rubber seal bearing can keep its smoothness a lot longer than metal shield bearing.

I use Valvoline synthetic oil, but other brands work fine as well. Just 1-2 drops per bearing is enough.
