Thanks Jim - I took a look at the bearings and repacked with grease and
there was no unusual wear sign so I think it's just grease leakage as you
suggest. With all this taxi-testing it seems more like a go-kart than an
airplane.

Dave ,

Over packing the bearings can cause them to run hot as grease is a poor
conductor of heat. I use very little grease just enough to fill the cage none
anywhere else.
