BB2129 Engine mount retainers (CNC)

It's more of a one piece bottom plate but it does take more flex out of the chassis in that area.

I used the 777 engine mounts. But thats not to say that those will not strip also. I just needed a quick fix...

Also does anyone have a lot of slop in the rear hubs. Thought it was the bearings but the bearing are good. Maybe they are moving in the hubs?

I wonder if it is the same with the plastic hubs? I think the bearings are moving in the hubs or the axels diameter is a litlle small for the bearings.. Car still works good though

The plastic rear hubs tend to develop slop real quick as opposed to the cnc rear hubs. If you have cnc rear hubs stick with them the plastic rear hubs reduce the weight, but as I mentioned tend to develop slop quicker. Nothing to worry about.

i have only used the plastic hubs, so i can not comment on the cnc version. i do feel that the axle is way under size for the bearing bore. i measured them both using od and id mics. i was really shocked what i got for numbers. i don't know about QA control at nanda, but i think they need to tighten up on the slip fit in this area.

Not a good weekend for TQ at the SIC. I guess I will try to make up for it at the Xtreme race on the 17th.

The SIC did not go my way for sure. I was hoping for a top five finish in pro buggy.

The Exteme should be a good time.

Brian you coming to florence?? Looks like Jarivs is running is buggy as well. So it might be a nice turnout for buggy's.
