I use Mugen Sticky grease and apply it before every race meet - not so hard to do, only one screw
I agree to much play and its gooooooone. And really to undo one screw to apply the grease to the thrust bearing isnt a lot of tough work. Considering if it goes in the race you would be pretty annoyed that you didnt grease it up.

Any particular grease you would consider the best to use on the thrust bearing?

When you guys do relube the bearing, do you disasemble the assembly or apply grease to the area after a couple of tanks?

Sorry if this is a repeat question...just a little hard to locate the info in the 150+ pages.

Thanks,
Puma
I never lube them and it last me over a year now! and I run almost every saturday!

I run the Hy-Spin lube by Racer's Choice also. Speedline carries it, and at one time Horrizon Hobby carried it. I don't know if they still do or not.

Endplay is he biggest enemy of the thrust bearings, the advise already posted is right on. No need for me to repost it. I lube my thrust bearing at the begining of the race day, and keep my endplay at .3-.4mm. The one on my MTX-2 is over 2 years old.

Acutally I would of never known they were bad if I didn't take it apart to relube. It seemed to be fine until it was removed then I saw the ball bearings were no longer balls

Have you had your apart?

Manitore had mentioned that you may have located the Hyspin grease online?

Thanks,
Puma

You know, I am glad to see that this thread hasn't changed. The first time I posted a question about breaking CVD dog bones the reply I recieved was ...don't hit stuff... Then I asked a couple questions, and then don't get e answer. So I stopped asking questions. Then when someone asked about 3racing CVD's I posted that I have broken both 3racing and Mugen, and what do I get in reply from someone. "WOW u must hit lots of things" Well guess what, I broke a couple bones when I DID NOT HIT ANYTHING. I tried going to 1 droop and my servo saver was too loose. I guess now I know why I hate on-road gas so much, all you get is bashing. You don't see it much with dirt people.

Didn't use any diff oil, instead I use the RedLine grease. Mugen Grease works best, as well.
