I put Boca bearings in my T2 007 after my original ones failed and they are the best. I recommend the double shielded ones. They are just over $100 but well worth it. Good luck.

Did you get your boca's as a set or individually? I didn't see double shielded on their site. Are the ones you use, ceramic?

Mine are ceramic and I got them as a set. The set came with 10 of the smaller bearings for the axles and the layshaft and 4 of the big ones for the diffs. I would call and order by phone. Just ask for the double shielded. Their number is 800-332-3256. Good luck.

I recommend the cheapest bearing set you can find on ebay. At $1 or less per bearing, when they get gritty and a blast of motor spray doesn't fix that, toss them and replace.

I use cheap bearings also... just toss em when they feel gritty...
I recommend AVID... $1 a piece and in the USA so cheap shipping.

I actually went ahead and ordered a full set from avid about 30 minutes ago. 10 Revolutions for the axles, full rubber sealed for the diff carriers, 4 rubber sealed for inside the diffs, and metal for the steering. All that for $20. I'll have plenty to throw at it when any feel gritty now. I may order a couple more sets if I like them.

Yup, that's what Rick was telling me. Said you were pulling people around the track again today. Sounds like it wouldn't matter if you were driving a piece of firewood with wheels nailed to it. I'm trying to find a home for my Type R as well. I had a collection for a while, but I've trimmed the tree back a little, got rid of my Cyclone already, and I'm going to be giving away a XXX-S G+ at the next raceday.

I looked hard at the Cyclone and probably would have bought it but the deal for the Kyosho fell in my lap and for no money just a straight trade. Couldn't pass that up! Now I get to use my metric tools more than once a year at the TCS race!! LOL
BTW--Ricky's car was very good as well. The track sucked from NO traction additive and he got caught up on the first or second lap with some wild drivers.

Not this year. I couldn't commit the $$ considering Nats was so close. I still gotta pick and choose my races.

I understand that, I can't imagine it's cheap to make an outta state race, especially on your own.
