I've been using BOCA for a long time and they are great for the money. I buy the base kit and it is about $1 per bearing, shipped.
I ran the Boca ones in a hyper sc10 and had a good run out of them.
was wondering how the Avids hold up, mite just go the Boca again.

I have not had a problem with the bearings in my V3... But, I would like to upgrade to ceramics. My 410 is going through a clean up, and reset on all my moving parts. I removed the speedo for a rewire, and clenaed it all up. Its going to be awesome when Im done.

the V3 has no problems at all this above poster has the 410R version and has been having trouble with bearings

i two have not replaced 1 being since i got my buggy in october / november 2011 and use it 3 to 4 times a week

i guess the extra $100 is well worth it for the V3 kit

Have some issues:

-Both diff outdrives have a lot of up/down play. Anyway to fix this? This is causing a lot of vibration and noise.
-I read the TD tip on shimming the diffs, but they both seem to never change noise. Both seem to mesh fine but I'm still not happy. Thoughts?
-Center slipper wobbles, and I tried another spur as well. Can this be shimmed as well?
-I switched to an 81 spur when testing the slipper wobble, so what pinion should I start with on a 6.5?

Auto,
I would try 81/21 or so.. I run a 6.5 too 83/22.
As for the diff wobble, there isn't a fix for that.
My slipper is true as far as spur/pinion, but the output to the rear isn't totally true. I suspect the reason is the set screw for the cup. If it was a pinch design like a servo horn , the wobble would be gone. But luckily the rear joint absorbs most of it.
My car is wisper quite on the track.

Default Parts

Looks like TD is starting to restock parts, most everything is showing in stock now including 410v3 kits I just don't see the parts showing up in the us market yet I wish HRP would get their act together and get some parts to the local market. I spoke to someone at HRP two different times asking for status of when they expect to get parts and both times they said they have no idea I just don't understand that response, get on the phone and get some answers, it is not that hard! I'm done ranting now

210 + 410 are ready on my new Wing Tote hauler for some practice in the morning. Can't wait to get this thing on the track.

Going to try 23/81 with the 6.5. That's really the smallest pinion I can get on it without having really bad mesh. My motor is pushed all the way in on the mount so I don't have anymore room to get the motor closer.

Also, today at my LHS Swap meet, I found a pair of rear Losi Red Sprints! Awesome tire back in the day. Mounted them on the kit yellow wheels and eventually I'll run them. Going to try to find some front Sprints as well.

Hopefully, I should have some good news to report tomorrow.

23/81 and a 6.5 is not a good combo. Why the smaller spur? Motor is going to get hot fast.

Well, I didn't get much practice with the buggy today because I broke the left rear hub + arm on a cartwheel off a big jump. Also broke the hinge pin in half.

Didn't even get the car dirty.

I used 81/23 because with the 87 spur, even with bigger pinions, the buggy seemed really slow and didn't have any top-end.
