What colour?? Im colour blind.

Hey Hav, ive been raving on for this stuff for ages. If u wna just wait n save to get a new set just spray the old ones with microlon and itll free em up better than factory, but wear them out big time.

No matter what you do to your bearings, once they are wet and full of the fine dust that was on the track in round five, they are shot. Before i replaced mine i first pulled the shields off and soaked them in acetone overnight. They were then blown out with motor spray and butane. Even after that they were still gritty. It's all because that fine dust scratches up the balls within the bearing. You could try filling them with a mild metal polish and spinning them on the dremel for a minute or two but i very much doubt you'd get them back to how they should be.

Default Working down at the track

Guys,

Those of you that were going to come down to Tempe on Saturday to help with the lighting, we have had some changes in plans due to the uncertanty of the weather this weekend.

We are not getting the single man lift this weekend, but on Sunday, weather permitting, I will be going down to do the conduit/cabling between the light poles and to turn the lights around on top of the fence to light up the pit area and wire them in a more permanent manner.

I was thinking of then going down the courts to have a bit of a spin afterwards.

So if anyone wants to help out, I'll be there, about 9.30am - 10.00am

Cheers

David
