Default Ball Bearings problem

Hallo to everybody, i am new here. Two months ago I bought x-ray nt1 kit and i have a problem with my ball bearings, i have already changed them twice and they are not cheap at all. When i am in a hurry I sometimes clean my rc car with methylated spirit and if it's not the dirty tracks i sometimes run, i think it's this.Does anybody has an idea the cause of this and is there a way to make my ball bearings be good again??

hi,
i think that ' methylated spirit' is like 'denatured alcohol'.

anyways, i think that cleaning with a solvent can/will wash away the grease or oil in the bearings, so either:
1) be more careful with the 'spirits' and not flush the bearings
2) remove the bearings, clean them and apply a fresh lubricant to the ball bearings.
