It gives me a huge advantage in the heat. I'm willing to over look the bearings.

They should just make a running change. Yeah, I know bearings are cheap and you need to use the MIP top shaft anyway. I know odd things keep me away from products.


on a side not, do you have to use their motor place and gear cover?

Usually a spacer of some type is used between the screw and the upper oring. This allows the chassis to flex more.

Their engineers must have been listening to you because they made that running change (http://miponline.com/store/mip14300.html). You can now use either top shaft/top shaft bearing combo (whatever) and they made it lighter. I run a stock gearcover on mine so I assume that I could use a stock motor plate as well.

wonder why they are going through the effort of making the case use both bearings.

Default Mip puck system

I was thinking of trying the puck system in my stock mid motor buggy what is your opinion? Worth it or not!

Thanks Chris
