Anyone got a picture of the Speedtech spools, just to see what the differences are?

speedtechrc.com

it looks like a locked diff, but it heavier and doesn't need the rings around the outdrives. Also, it has been drilled in a few spots to save weight.

I ran one in mod and stock yesterday. It chatters in the 180's, but I think it worked fine overall. I did break a front axle (not the bone) and threw out a coupler. If you do get the spool, switch to steel universals up front.

I'm just back from a race. The LCG was amazing... I was able to place TQ and was more then 9 seconds faster then the 2nd. Overall I ended 2nd because I was to stupid to stay in front in the second final and I got a hit from behind in the third final at the start... but it was really nice... the 2nd place was enough to take the overall win in the HPI-Challenge 17T in the region "South"... (17T & 17T junior)
First title for the LCG... I'm a historical person...

Cheers
Chris

Guys, I need to find a 3x6mm flanged bearing like the ones in the LCG steering rack. I lost one and I can't find one anywhere. There isn't even a part number for on in the LCG manual. LMK if anyone has one they are willing to sell to help out a fellow yoko driver.

thanks
chad

Hello
Could you tell me what is the difference in weight between stock and ceramic ball bearings? Are ceramic bearings stronger than stock? How many grams will i save?

I'm sure there's a very, very slight weight difference but where the ceramics shine is their ability to spin very freely.

Yokomo! I've personally had problems with Acer bearings and the Boca's are really expensive. The Yokomo ceramics are really good

It seems like they're out of stock right now though. I would send Steve an email and see when he's expecting some more in.

With Yokomo USA moving to another building it is taking Steve @ Speedtech a little while to get his orders so please be patient. Service and support are great as well.

Sorry Matt didn't mean to highjack your post. Just thought he would like to know it might tkae a week or so to get them back in stock.

you didn't hijack anything, Yokomo USA's move is why I suggested emailing Steve to see when he expected more in. Yok USA is back up and running so as long as they have the ceramics in stock Speedtech should be able to get them in a day or two.
