yes it will contain the smaller bearings. it will have 5x9 bearings at the axles hubs.

I've noticed some people complain about the 850 bearings in the uprights on the Evo IV in this thread (and I guess it would be similar with the 415MS/MSX). My track has huge thick wooden boards everywhere, and breaking arms/uprights is a weekly thing. I have never had any issues with the bearings in the uprights playing up.

Does it cost alot to replace those arms and uprights on the lw suspension (i suppose that's what the Evo V will be using?)

Burlap - the bearings in the LW suspension are 950 sized.

Keep on getting those and the ones in the TA04/414/EvoIII size confused.

As was said earlier, our guess is that those arms are sort of the same as on the cyclone/pro4 (or maybe something even better). The team has been using the HPI arms on their cars for carpet racing because they're a lot better on that kind of surface for some reason.

But what a price tag, $897, in today's market that must surely be overpriced, no matter how good it is.

Thats just the MSRP (Manufacturer Stated/Set Retail Pricing) but noone ever actually sells it for that. Just look at the TRF415MSX, the MSRP for that is $823 but thats not what it sells for
