i don't know what they are compared to the stock mi3 towers. the rear will be fine. the front, though, will need the ae perches, some cutting of the ball end AND maybe some short springs (no longer than ours, and maybe even shorter - yokomo) it's going to be close, but i bet you can pull it off.

Thanx

I use the same oil as for regular bearing lubricating.

There is also Serpent one-way oil but i never tried that.

I've never ruined a one-way yet, so it must be good oil i use.

Just go to your local car shop and get some full-synth engine oil, thats what i did, awesome stuff for bearing and bushings.

I use LOSI thick grease to slow the action down a bit. Works good for rubber/carpet

DON'T use normal bearing/bushing oil for oneways! Normal oils are "high pressure" oils, they lubricate too well, the oneways WILL slip and burn down. Maybe not with stock motors, but pretty much guaranteed with mod.
Use one-way bearing oil, Serpent one is good and it will last a long time (my bottle is over 5 years old, although during last few years the only one-way I've used has been in the gearbox of my Mugen. One-way oil is a low-pressure oil, it creates a weaker film on the rollers, so that they will cut through the oil film and will not slip.
The difference is the same as normal grease vs. diff grease (diff grease being low pressure).

80's. I was running a 32/96 with 57 mm tires and my motor didn't get over 130.
Tonite ran a rollout of about 36mm (36/96 w/55.5mm tires) and the car was ballistic!! Hit a fast lap of 12.9 and I know the car has a 12.5-.7 in it. Motor came off at 140-degrees. Once I figured out the front shock length to get the droop-n-ride height I wanted, the car is $$money$$.

I luv my MI3
