Antonis,

Another alternative to consider is to upgrade your diff and thrust balls to ceramics. Makes for an ultra smooth diff.

Best source I know of is Bill Riggins in USA at riggins@hotpop.com. Last time the cost was $1 per ball. Bill also has an excellent thrust bearing grease he includes free with a full set of balls.

i woud probably be best to just get another motor. Motors that come with kits usually arent that great in quality.

It depends.

Are you satisfied with the motor's speed? is it still in good shape?

If so, stick with it until you burn it up.

Antonis,

You will also find that Bill Riggin's ceramic balls are grade 3. Most others seem to sell grade 5 balls. The lower the number the better their tolerances.

So Bill,

The only thing that I will need to be changed, will be the washers. What's their size?

Anywhere where I can buy from?

aantonis,

I have never figured out the size of those washers. I use the standard washers from Losi Part No. A-3099 which is the "Full Compliment Thrust Bearing Set" and just toss the balls.

Someone else may have figured that out; but, you would also need to get them in the same grade of material.

Default Ceramic bearings and balls

I have had the complete Acer ceramic bearing kit in one car and a Trinity kit in the other. Both kits cost about $100 each at the time and have been excellent for over 12 months now.

Using ceramic balls in the diff/thrust area is another high end mod to consider. My diffs go forever.

FYI...I have a "diff" car and a "one-way" car. Otherwise, their setups are pretty similar. The "one-way" car currently gets the nod for most situations.
