But why you don't build one.
Take the original washer of the original thrust bearing and put in n 8 ceramic balls #2mm or n10 ceramic balls #1/16"
It's eternal and really cheap.
ciao ciao

The McMasters outer "washers" are actually bearing races. I wouldn't reuse old races in a new diff rebuild. Now if you could come up with new races I'd give it a try.

No idea, but is easy that is "somehow" an american standard.

Can someone have a look at some professional supplier?

Well I have the full production version in my car now so with the design finalised it won't be long I imagine they mayb in the states as soon as the end of next week. I'm sure Paul will let you guys know.

Making it seven different makes of cars in the Practice Ranking Top 10 are Lucas Urbain and Olly Jefferies. Urbain has been the surprise here in Luxembourg with his Losi.
There's a guy at the Euros in the top 10 with his Type-R. He's modified it quite a bit to get more flex from the car. Seems to be working.

Couldn't have said it better myself. I also expect them to be stateside by late next week.

??? A Type R in the top ten at the Euro's! Never thought I'd see that. Hey Dragonfire I see he has high roll centers, no JR link and lots of flex! Imagine how fast he would be if he had some Flying Fox parts in his car

I'll be having one of them spools!

We need to track down that guy at the Euros and pinch his setup. Liking the top deck, looks VERY similar to mine

On Pic#5 has anyone noticed the locknut sneakily next to the servo? Has he made a protector for the servo wire?
