Default Answer-Rc Product and Support

This is to congratulate Mike Cleary and his team at answer-rc for a great product and exceptional customer service.
There are a lot of companies that claim to have the best, and I have tried a few!!
Their clutch bearings are the best I have tried so far. Under a personal test, and almost 1 full gallon on a set of bearings (from the packet, no cleaning and prepping) that still spin as good as new.
Apart from that, I bought a Losi 8 bearing set and received 2 sets of clutchbell bearings FREE!!!

The quality of the clutch bearings, led me to purchase the full set and I am totally impressed.
CONGRATULATIONS!
From a customer for life.

Great to hear that the word is spreading!!!

Answer-Rc are a company that ONLY release products that have been extensively tested for quality, longevity and value for money so I will confidentally predict that if you try anything else in the range you will be left with the same impression ... the clutch shoes are awesome by the way


Keep your eyes peeled for new Answer-Rc products as I know they are looking at various new stuff

Gotta agree their bud.
Well pleased with the bearings I've used from Answer RC.

+1000 for Answer-RC products and their customer service! Mike will always go the extra mile to take care of you. Not only are their clutch bearings exceptional, but you should also give their new ceramic engine bearings a try...they ROCK!!

Bearings, clutches, shoes, air filter systems, flywheels, springs...all excellent products from a company who cares about the RC racer.

Clutch bearings come in separate tubes of 10 or in a 4 pack of pairs. Answer clutches are the best i've used and i've used many. Mike just got the new bells in made from softer material.

Guys! Thanks for the shout outs. It's been just over a year now that I've been handling Answer-RC in the US. The product line has been evolving and Pete the owner in the UK does what it takes to keep improving. We just got in Losi clutch bells with 'less' hardness for improved wear. We're making minor running changes to all the clutches based on feedback as well.

Every cent of profit has either gone to grow the product line or satisfy my R/C addiction. I'm working on scaling the operation out to handle more and be efficient.

I've been involved in many forms of racing and R/C by far has proven to be the most rewarding largely because of the relationships developed with racers helping each other.

The engine bearings are what I am most impressed with. They are priced really competitively and have worked really well in each engine that I have put them in. Now if Mike would just get some in the Werks/Sirio size, I would be supa dialed.

Thanks for the help Answer RC.

I haven't tried the bearings yet, but I do run the clutch shoes and they are great. I've put a gallon on them and they hardly show any wear at all. I can see these shoes lasting the life of the motor, easily.
