Default Clutch bearing durability?

This weekend my MTX4 arrived and yesterday I had a chance to test it. It ran very nice from the first run But I am a bit concerned about the clutch and specially the bearings.

Even on the new clutch/bearings I can feel quite a bit of play when I try to move the clutch housing (I'm not talking about play in the direction of the crankshaft ofcourse).
Can someone who has run some gallons on this car share some experiences if the bearings hold up, and when they let go.

I also noticed the side belt is really lose, especially with 24t pulley. Is this a problem?

Thanks!

Total 3 bearings : 2 inside the clutchbell, 1 outside.

Yes, they have little bit of play ( wobble a bit ) but it's okay. Just make sure to replace the three bearings quite often..... maybe every 1 gallon of fuel.

There is belt tensioner to tighten the side belt.

I know that the yellow teflon ones don't soak up the fuel so you have better brakes.

In the clutch, the 3 bearings I havn't had a problem with them there, but the ones in the break and in the steering servo saver, I've lost 4 of the little buggers in this area. I lost breaks this past weekend and I tried everything, then I finally pulled the rear section off the chassis and found that the lower bearing was completely shot. Anybody else have this happen?

I've heard from some of my friends that they have bearing problems in the engine. Also, at a regional race, the Mugens had problems with rocks getting lodged in the belts, where the Kyosho drivers had none of those problems. Another friend sold his 4 for a RRR because of the bearing problems...

Thanks for your comments. I'll see how the clutch bearings hold up. Btw; I see the original ones have metal shields, but the ones I ordered in reserve have rubber shield. Any preferred type?

Regarding the side belt tension, yes I do know there is an adjustable tensioner there, but even so the belt is really loose to the point that it looks like both "sides" might touch and interfere during running. But I guess it's not a problem then

I was told the side belt should be fairly loose, so it is normal...
