    A Few Questions! First Major disassembly

    Hey everyone, i just took apart my e revo to clean it up before posting it up as a roller (bought roller from NFS that was dyed black), so i found that a few of my rpm carrier bearings were kind of frozen up. is there anything i can do to clean them up, or am i just best off buying new bearings. Thanks in advance

    Personally, I would be replacing them. If it is the 8x16mm carrier bearings that you are referring to, then just go with avid bearings or really upgrade to Acer ceramics.

    Yeah. It is them. The bigger ones and the smaller ones both froze up. But the front bearings are just fine..

    The back ones get hit with a lot more dirt and need more service than fronts

    Just cleaning after runs, keep the bearings lubed.

    What's the best to lube them with. So take apart the car after every run?

    I use acer sin lube on mine, and don't take it apart but I'll take my wheels off after a really dirty run.

    Just pull the dust shield off the bearings and inspect them, clean them out with compressed air and a little wd40 and if they free up and look ok throw a couple dabs of grease in there and work it around by spinning the bearing and pop the dust seal back in. I have had good luck doing that.
