Get sealed bearings, and blow it off after every run. Grease everything once every few runs. Should be more than enough to keep it running well

I agree with Robb, also doesn't hurt to get canned air to get stuff out of there.. I take mine apart every week to clean out.. No need to do that but it's the OCD in me.. Lol

Me since will all the heavy dust here jus after each session with canned air tubing I would blow out all the ventilation areas you would be surprised how much stuff get accumulated in there...

thanks very much. I have been blowing car off after every 1/2 hr of drive time. and when done i have been giving the can a couple shots of oil. and blowing out driveline and putting some grease to the bearings. this is the original can and ecs in this chassis so when the brushed motor finally wears out I will be looking at a sensored brushless combo. this motor not liking to be run at lower rpm. it likes to lag abit b4 it picks up. does that mean the brushes are in need of replacing?

sometimes... this usually means the commutator is worn and needs to be addressed.
