Default 1/8 onroad bearings question

Just got a new MRX4. This is my first 1/8 kit, so I am wondering what
is a good practice to reduce drag. Do you clean up the greese
in the bearings with motorspray and then use thinner bearing oil?
Like you would do with the electrics?

Any other tips are appreciated.

Mugen bearings are notorious for spewing out all the grease after the first few runs. Run them as is and you will be fine. When it's time for replacements, go for Acer Ceramics. The hold up much better, especially at the front and rear hubs.
