first - i want to thank you for the very quick and attentive responses to all my posting around the web. i can see that you seriously DO care about what we - your customers - think of your products and your company. i REALLY do like sts products - i will continue to use sts products and recommend sts to everybody.
i shopped around the web - here are a few links to motor bearings and the prices - you might be interested...
GRAINGER industrial supply - local to me - i just go in and pick the items up - 8$ for a quality double sealed steel bearing;
go here and do a search for 'bearing 7 19';
BOCA bearings - direct shipped - FREE shipping = 32$ for a HIGH HEAT-HIGH SPEED bearing kit for an MT12;
dino - note all the MOTOR BEARING KITS that BOCA sells! they must have 100+ r/c nitro motors - but NO STS! you MIGHT want to contact them....
as for MY motor - i WILL ship it direct to you in Taiwan - it's going to take awhile but i am willing to wait - thx for your EXCELLENT service!!
btw - nice that you took the time to find and reply at THIS super r/s forum - the ppl in this forum are some of teh MOST expirenced r/d'ers i know - espicially InitialD ;-))
