If thats a 3x8 thrust we have those alot cheaper than that. If someone wants to try it out let me know so you can post the feedback here.

We also have Carbide Balls for about as cheap as you can find.

You can get these trust bearings at any ball bearing store and I have to say the ones I got from the ball bearing store hold out longer then the Slapmaster bearing. The cage that holds the slapmaster bearing held out 1 season before getting a lot of play, the one I bought for 7 lasts better...

I will add 1/8 to my next order, give it a couple weeks with the Holidays shipping takes longer.

Quante - Mine are different than any others and the cage on mine holds up as it is a solid piece with the balls precisionely (sp?) set in - your "opinion" is appreciated but cannot be backed up since you have not tried ours.

Thats why I said "slapmaster bearing" , yours was just the first post I pushed quote.
I was kinda disappointed with the slapmaster one, but there's enough people that are satisfied with it and thats why I dont say it on the 1/12th thread.
If yours doesnt have a cage but a solid ring it should hold out even better, I just havent seen em in that size. and shipment to Europe would be quite expensive to just try it.

the slapmaster thrust bearing is good for club racing but for big races i dont use it.
i just use it to save the bearing a little.

Are any of you using the Niftech alignment tool? I just got mine, and am having a heck of a time trying to understand how it works!

I'm able to get it attached to the car, but how the hell are you supposed to derive any measurements when there is nothing scribed anywhere (except for the white lines)

Hopefully, i'm missing something simple.

Any help on this would be appreciated.
