Pass the word on. I'm willing to donate time on the production line to help get some kits out the door. I will even help with packaging and shipping.

Anyone having bearing issues? My A800X has done 4 meets now, and I put in Plaig Ceramics during the build, the front left bearing on the spool seized up on me last race, and when I went through it, 3 other bearings were borderline, the left hand side on the rear diff and both bearings on the back left hub.

u need to oil bearings. i have zero experience w/ plaig bearings ... but in general, not oiling before install is setting yourself up for failure

Plaig bearings come pre-packed with grease.

And I always apply Trinity Royal Oil to bearings prior to fitting them to the car.

so did the AMTX kit bearings for 3+ years until they didnt. then there were a bunch of reports of seized bearings due to a manufacture sub-component issue.

ill continue to recommend that people -- #1 degrease their bearings & #2 oil appropriately

Bearings aren't even a thing for me anymore...take care of them the best you can and when they go, they go.
