PostSubject: Bearings and stuff   Mon Feb 02, 2009 6:37 pm

Hey guys...

After we move (hopefully middle of march cheers ) I'm going to have an awesome RC workshop. And well, I'm hoping to go and rebuild all my rides.
I've tried to rebuild/clean my revo once (took me over 5 months, and nothing got done), but this time, I'm actually going to go through with rebuilding all my rides. But I need some help.
I hope to replace all the bearings, esscpeically in the revo because a few are missing
But, what type of bearings should I get? Is there any inexpensive ones? What do you suggest?
And is there anything else that I should replace when I rebuild all my rides? Any tips/hints?

Thanks,
Matt

I take advantage of the winter to rip apart my rides. I replace bearings if they feel bad and I use bearings from Full Force RC. I also replace screws with theirs as well. They have handy kits for the bearings as well as the screws. Both are great quality and reasonably priced as well. I also clean all my gears in the differentials and inspect them for wear. If they are worn then I replace them other wise I just cram a bunch of Moly grease into the differentail and slap it all back together while I clean everything up. That way come spring I know everything is in tip top shape. Hope this helps

This place has the cheapest bearings I've ever seen, and shipping is super cheap to.

I'll never buy bearings on ebay again lol!

Thats what I find nice about this hobby. Usually people are nice and share information, except for major racers, they usually keep their secrets. lol!

ya I gotta agree with mike on the ffrc bearings they are waterproof and everything rite now in my slash I have wala wala bearings and they may be a little pricey but they are worth it the only thing is if you mud snow water w/e bash anything with water they'll rust and I haven't had a performance decrease yet but I wanna swcth to ffrc in my slash because of the rust but if you dont water bash then wala wala bearings would be the best bet but ffrc are still great.

The thing is those bearings from that link I posted are so cheap for the price you'd pay for ffrc bearings you could change bearings like 6 times.

I looked at the site Larry and the Full Force bearings are a dollar a piece as well. I might try out the ones you linked next winter see if the hold up as good
