In general Blue is my favorite color. But for RC I prefer it to be blacked for the most part. Also, the Avid's are keyed to prevent popping off.

ive never had a spring perch rip off. it has to be slid up and then pushed over for that to happen.

there's always somebody who manages to do this though. They are usually towards the less experienced end of the scale.

Man, at our track there's a hodge podge of fast folks and grenades. Sometimes you hit a grenade and all sorts of stuff that normally wouldn't just comes clean off your car

Schelle IMO has the best bearings for the money and it looks like you're running stock so I would get the Ceramic gearbox bearings and then they're hub replacement bearing set which will cost $54 but it is deff worth it or you could just get the regular bearing set which I believe is $28.

You can click HERE to see the bearings they have and then HERE is the hub replacement bearing set so if you get the ceramic gearbox bearings you dont have to buy two full sets.

Would be nice if AE would offer the C and D aluminum arm mounts in black to complete the blacked out look for the car...

Yes, but if you go with the ceramic gearbox set, you won't need the full kit.

Yeah, they have black motor plates and black hubs. I would like black shock parts and suspension holders for sure

You might want to also check out Avid bearings. I run them in all my cars ..I like how they are metal shielded on one side and this lets them spin more free than most bearings. Another Neat thing is you just select you car and they build the kit for you and you can select any bearing style you want like if you want to upgrade the gearbox bearings to ceramic you can.

Yes you can get that but I was saying since you run stock to get the ceramic gearbox bearings which are less drag and lower motor temps and then get the hub replacement bearings for $14 which replace the rest of the bearings so you dont have to spend $28 on the whole kit which you're not going to use the gearbox bearings from.
