I use Mugen Sticky grease and apply it before every race meet - not so hard to do, only one screw

the hyspin is a non grease type (wax type) high temp lube and it is of high quality.
Where can I get some online?

Thanks,

I also use "Ronnie Grease" on my thrust bearings. It's very slippery and it's stickiness helps it stay in place longer.

I also ran the thrust bearings without lubing them once and they held up fine. Just gotta set the endplay right.

agree, too much end play will give more loading (more free spin) on the trust bearing until the clutch engaged.

Yes, I use this too. Very good and sticky grease. Other normal grease that I use will fly out after a few tanks. The Mugen grease will still stick into the ball cages at the end of the day.

The other thing that constitutes to the distruction of the thrust bearing is wrong assembly. You need to take note that each mating piece have slightly different inner diameter. If install it wrongly, the smaller inner diameter will spin at the same rate as the engine RPM and this burns up the bearing fast. The one closest to the engine should be the one having the larger diameter.
