I wait untill the teeth are are sharp and shaped like a triangle. I throw out that set of spurs that were used with those pinions. Gear mesh is checked after each run.

Hi there,

a quick question about bearings for the MRX5:

With the introduction of the smaller bearings for the uprights, bearing quality and maintenence became more of an issue for me. I used to run Acer ceramics in both the MRX4 and 5, but looking for alternatives.
What bearings do you guys use, and whats your maintenance/replacement schedule? I am competing on the national level in Europe, so I want a free spinning set of bearings and I will completely rebuild the car before every race meet (all 4 weeks with some practice in between)....
Was looking at Bocca -whooping expensive, and ABEC35 - lots of options ther which are confusing and they recommend to grease ceramics (which will slow them down)...

Thanks, Stefan

Welcome to the ultra lite race car. I have tried a bunch of stuff. It has been the inner bearings in the front and rear up-rites that have the shortest life span. At this point the best bearing I have found for use in this area is the mugen bearings that come in the ten pack. They are a step above what comes in the kit. The rest of the car I am using avids steel with rubber shields. I am weighing the car this weekend and replacing everything with ceramic except for the inside up-rite bearings.

Thanks a lot for your follow-up Drew! You are right man, the bearings in the bulkheads are a real pain in the backside. I have already switched to the Mugen OEM parts there. Interesting that you found that the aftermarket bearings are better then the ones in the kit. I will give them a shot as well...

CU, Stefan

The ten pack of 12x18 is from Mugen. I'm using these on the inside or chassis side of H212 and H2124, just to clarify.

Hey guys I lost my MRX-5 and it's currently out of stock in my country. Does anyone know the cheapest place I can get a kit and have it delivered to South Korea? If anyone knows any places that does international shipping, that would be great. Thanks in advance!
