If you were addressing me...

I have a 19T Chameleon/Monster Stock 27T which I swap out.

I use regular ball diffs in the front and back. I did get a pair of aluminum outdrives (After the rear blew but before the front blew) to dissipate heat faster. I want to wait till I can fix both diffs before I rebuild both diffs. My LHS guy sold me the wrong D-Rings...actually he sold me T4 rings instead. I need the whole thing replaced...even the thrust bearing ect...

Any advice?

Default Front Wheel Bearings

Hi People,

My Tc3 seems to always be consuming front wheel bearings. Almost every meeting I check the car and one or more of the front wheel bearings is almost seized solid. I've replaced them with teflon sealed bearings and still the same problem, so I don't think its dirt related.

I think I've replaced five or six bearings in a couple of months.

I'd be grateful for any suggestions about what I'm doing wrong?

I've run my TC3 for at least five years & don't remember ever changing a bearing. I've got the inner seal removed & sometime when changing the front caster I'll put in a drop of Royal oil but otherwise I don't touch them. Have you been hitting stuff?

Default Front Bearing Concumption

Regarding my front bearing consumption:

1. Yes I hit the usual number of barriers from time to time, but no more than most other racers I would guess.

2. I get Duratrax teflon sealed bearings, I don't lube them or anything, I just put them in.

In about a meeting or two, they just start to go crunch and I have to replace them again.

Are the Duratrax a problem???? Should I be looking at some other brand of bearing perhaps? What is a good brand of bearings, and do they sell a kit for the TC3?

MIKE

try oiling them before you put them in and then you should see a difference

i would put 35 wt of pretty much any oil

i am guessing that the bearing gets hot and then the ball bearings in the bearing get flat on a suface and so the bearing would be called DEAD now

in other words a bearing that doesnt act like a bearing
