    I don't run my 4wd slash on the beach, but I do regularly run my 2wd slash on the beach. I never touch my bearings. I take the truck home, hose the crap out of it and blow it off with the compressor. All I do then is spray the exposed steel bits with wd40 and leave it. Of all the runs on the beach, I've only replaced 2 bearings. I personally reckon that the best thing you can do for your bearings is run the car on the road the day after you run the truck through whatever harsh environment you've put it through. I've had bearings that are quite gritty and take the truck out and run it up and down the road at full speed for about 10 minutes and they're all freed up. Of course, do this only with your basher, not your racer!

    After much beach running, I'm of the belief that the sealed traxxas bearings are sealed well enough for sand not to get in. Being a larger grain, sand doesn't make it in. Mud and dirt is going to ruin sealed bearings much faster than sand.

    As I said, since running on the beach, I've only replaced 2 bearings in total and I can't even put that down to the sand. I also run the truck everywhere and anywhere else so no doubt those 2 bearings were just due to normal wear and tear.

    2WD stays a lot cleaner than s4X4... doesn't have front traction to throw up the dirt
