dont spend your money on bearings...not needed!
My Mi2 is free'r than my mission was with accer carbides, fully blown clean of grease and lightly royal oiled, plus R.W pulles, and prepped belts..(soaked rear belt in wd.40 to soften
the Mi2 is free'r out of the box standard with no attention paid to increasing efficiency whatsoever...no belt prep, no work done to bearings etc..
the bearings included in the kit "look" identicle to Acrer dual polyamide bearings, blue seals, and are oiled not greased....
the difference from the mission bearing kit is that the diff bearings are now a 15x10 flanged bearings..you also need extra of the small flanged layshaft bearings to be used as the front belt tensioners...(4 in total) plus the layshaft power roller non flanged...
sorry but I dont have the bearing specs here with me, but save your money at least until its time to replace the kit bearings from wear and tear...
I ran my car as it came from the Kit, with the addition of some titanium screws and it was well and truly underweight, even with 15 grams added near the servo to get perfect balance, and a personal transponer installed...
this is the first car I havent felt the need to hopup!...may just get some Ti turnbuckles in purple coz they look so nice, but thats about it ..
I equaled my P.B on the 3rd run, using the kit setup and a diff, truly stoked!..
at the end of the second day, once I changed the diff to a spool, lets just say I was very very happy indeed!..still grinning...=)
The Mi2 is the easiest car I have ever driven at speed, I spent 2 days familiarising myself with the car, making adjustments to see how the car responed, and at the end of the 2nd day when I went for some fast runs, the times were there.
