Hi people,

I am currently running the front hubs with larger bearings, is this ok? If I was to use the small bearings with eccentric housings what position should I run them in and what effect would it give? Also, with regard to the hubs being marked 1 and 2, I am using No1 on the right. What effect does it have if I were to swap them.

Thanks in advance

I don't see any problem in running bigger bearings, just more mass to turn around but more solid and long lasting than the small original ones. Many pro racers do that. Just make sure your belt is not too loose or too tight.

Regarding the eccentric position, they only adjust the belt tension that's it because they put the inner axle forth or back.

I have heard so many tech theories about the position of the eccentric but honestly I believe they just strach or loose the belt nothing else. The position of the front wheels will not change with the eccentric carrying the one way, unless we are talking about the wheel hub eccentric.

1 and 2 stands for left and right but in this case I think you are talking about the whell hub right?

Thanks for your reply sm4100.

I was referring to the eccentric adjusters when using the small front hub bearings.

I have never experimented with them so was wondering what effect it has on the handling.

Sorry for any confusion.

what over all length are you guys running on the rear shocks when setup to use the carbon shock mounting point extensions on the arms?

what spacers are you guys running on the updated rear end, none, rubber, or aluminum?

what's the hot body to run?

While I await the release of the 977 Viper, I still have my 966 to run. Does anybody know what distance from the bumper do we mount the Protoform R18, Ive only ran the Blitz R18

Not sure about 1251 but I have been using 1258 with lipo w/o reg and they work perfectly.
