thankyou for your replies guys.

I am only using $1 bearings and will be throwing them away after only short use. the only reason i am oiling them is because they are a bit dry to start with..

I think i might have had the mesh a bit tight as the spur gear is getting fairly hot.

Its a MBX5R and i also have some marks on the clutch bell from rubbing on the chassis. How can i stop or limit this chassis flex?

I think i will blow out these bearings i have and either run them dry or use something like the acer sin lubed mentioned...

I am one of those tight wads and I clean my bearings. I take off one of the rubber seals then I dump them in my ultrasonic cleaner with some citrus cleaner. Leave them in there for about 480 seconds, blow them out with some compressed air till completely dry, then I relube with just a dab of belray grease. I haven't brought any clutch bearings for a long time.

Definetly a +1 on the Acer SIN oil, it costs $10 but its way worth it. I bought mine like a year ago and use it constantly, let people use it and its still full. One of the best buys I have made. I have had the same bearings without changing them "except in the clutch" since I got my truggy. Whenever they get really crudded up I blow them out motor spray them and Sin oil them and good as new again. I even bought new bearings but still have them.
