Is there some kind of retainer then? I remember a CRC car I had where the batts would slide on the slightest impact when I tried to run without it.

They last longer and don't destroy the outer bearing in the wheel hub from lateral pressure like cone washers do. And they are incredibly smooth.

These things are great, you will be blown away with how smooth the diff will be not to mention not haveing to replace the outer bearing all the time.

the advantage i have seen from a thrust bearing is that the wheel bearing doesnt take as much abuse.the diff will feel the same without the thrust bearing but if you take a good side shot to the rear axle you can run into problems without the thrust bearing.i have run with and with out a thrust.i felt that the diff was a little better when fresh without it but the thrust is very smoothe and does increase the life of the bearing.hope this helps.

the car is equiped with a infinitely adjustable battery locator for those fine weight adjustments.we use the IRS locator plate and i have 3 mounting adjustments on the chassis to compliment all of the adjuster holes already in the locator plate itself.the battery is held in there real good.
