What do you guys think pretty cool?

please explain the results when changing spur gears and pinions. what does going down in spur achieve? I understand pinions when having the same spur gear changes top end and bottom end. Which is it for spurs?

spurs work opposite of pinions......smaller spur = more top speed

Default Rear hub bearings get trashed easy?

Hi everyone,

I have had my b4 for about a half a year now, race it at OC/RC, West Coast, LRH, Pegasus, Hot Rod etc. The smooth indoor clay tracks don't cause much dirt/dust etc to build up on the car, but anytime i hit up places with looser surfaces, the inevitable buildup of dirt, sand etc gets all over/in the car.

I just tore my B4 apart to clean it up and found that the back bearings in my hubs are so gritty they hardly spin. I popped the side covers off (easier than I thought it would be) and sprayed them out with motor spray and plan to put some bearing oil in them, however some of the bearings, even after spraying them with a lot of motor spray simply will not get loose. 2 of my 4 rear hub bearings are grinding when I spin them.

Is it safe to assume that the beating that they take when landing jumps has put flat spots on the balls? it's not that much to replace them but I am wondering if any of you have had good luck with any aftermarket bearings for the back of your B4. I want low-maintenance ones that don't cost a fortune and perform well. I know it's asking for a lot, but hey, never hurts to ask and see what is out there (i am not a shill for a bearing co.)

Default Safe to clean B4 tranny gears with motor spray?

I am in the middle of cleaning my entire B4 and I want to know if it is safe to use motor spray to clean the internal gears (the "self lubricating" ones). I am assuming cleaning the metal ones with it is no problem. The bearings still spin perfectly so I am not going to touch those with any motor spray for fear of cleaning out any oil that is under the rubber seals.

+1 for Avid bearings. Easy to order on the website and for $1 each you can't go wrong. Just replace them every once in a while and you'll be good. You can't turn fast laps with locked up bearings. That's for sure.

Ditto on the cheap bearings. The local track sells them for 1.25 each, I keep a bunch im my box and change them often.

Motor spray is fine for all of the gears.
