Are those the same bearings they use in 1/8 scale clutches? They didn't last very long either, maybe even less. I was removing the grease and re-lubing them with a light oil. Front axle bearings seem to last longer with the thick stock grease, just have to break them in. IMO

yeah, those are also used in his 8th scale clutch bearings. I know the real issue is bearing alignment in the inserts. I played with it for an hour last night and give up. I might just run the +3mm inserts. I have the +3 in my daughters car and it felt pretty good in practice.

Not many run boosted 17.5. I would say try a 30/31 pinion if you really want to stick with the 72. I think I ran 72/34 to 69/34 area with blinky.

Yeh thanks , i run 17.5 blinky generally , a small indoor track has started up racing carpet , the quick guys are running 10.5 , although i am very competitive with the 17.5 i need a bit more power to compete for wins and dont want to change motor as this is really just something on the side that i do to support the track with numbers . It is alot of fun regardless :-)

Has anybody tried the 2.5+1 arm mount in 17.5? I think I may try it, but we don't race for three weeks. I'll have to learn to drive all over again anyway.

My local track is the same conditions (high bite) and I run Panther Slicks but want to try the Proline Primes. Any thoughts.

I haven't run boosted in a very long time, but I think you will need smaller pinion than 30. Of course it all depends on how aggressive you are with the boost.

You should be able to run 2.5 + 1 with the C block inserts

Running boost in 17.5 depends on alot things. How much boost, how big of a track, how hot your motor runs now. If you only need a little .try gearing down a few teeth and up the boost 5% at a time. But watch the motor temps real close.

The 2.5 + 1's are the same insert as 2.5 + 2's , you flip them and change sides.
