I would think black grease would be better than wd40...yes! But wd-40 works, its fast, and its what I got haha!!! What I would do if i were you is try each one. Go run for a bit and clean and put grease on them. Then next time out, try wd-40. Take your bearings out each time and see the difference between them. I really havent gotten that in depth with experimenting with bearings. Avids are the way to go, so if i suspect one going bad, i just get a new avid for a buck and im on my way again. But if you want long lasting life, then one of those options will be the way to go.

Just experiment is all I can say.

Oh and with wd-40, when it dries it actually leaves a coating over it. Kind of like a protective layer. So I dont see any damage done with wd-40.
when in doubt, throttle out! braaap!

if you mean rebuild them yes i rebiuld my one's every 1 month or when i finish a 4 litre bottle of fuel. hwat ever comes first or last depending on what i am feeling. but you should at least check then after every outing. but if you are talking about replacing RTR grease with silicone oil than yes. it makes it easyer to drive and aloows you to tunne them but you will have to replace it more often.
go hard or go home
