Keep up the good work Jason.

I cant say definitively "no", but a belt drive BJ4 isnt on our current list of projects.

Theres quite a few more items as well.

In my expirience I havent heard of any one-way bearing failures, but you might want to shoot Jason an email to see if he can shed some light on that (if there is any to be, haha).

I have a center one-way where the aluminum hub devoloped a small crack that allows the bearing inside to spin making it worthless. I also wore out the bearings in my NTC3 front one way.

One-way bearings fail all the time with those roto mount starters for nitro engines. I know its not quite the same application, but they break alot.

I imagine a brushless motor is probably putting more power on a one-way bearing than a rotostart drill though.

Well Ive had them in TC3 oneways, as well as the BJ4, without issue.

[Aggdaddy] -Those undergo much more stress, and its almost like they are designed to fail, haha.

Paul, yep!
