BTW, once I recover from the blow of buying the R2, I can get us a good deal on some ceramic bearings, including the PAL bearing no cost

Glad to hear it's on the way, even though I have my R2, I cant wait to get it

I'll let you know when I can get us the ceramic bearings, might be able to get a better price since I am going to outfit both cars with them.

I sprayed out the goop from the bearings and re-oiled them with royal oil, then ran it another 2000 seconds at 2.5 volts. I can spin the drivetrain so freely by hand now, one slight spin will coast for about 3 seconds with no rotating mass to keep the momentum going, it's amazing!
OIY, stop making me feel guilty, my car is still dirty from the last week of racing it's gunna be a big rebuild to get it that free again
