Randman, there's nothing wrong with the bearing set you got with the web, at least build it and run it before dismissing its talents to some soon to be lucky owner.

Herm, gonna have it ready for the next time you race??
We await the verdict

There is a problem that I can think of right off hand... I sold the bearing set as soon as I got the car, I was going for the ultimate Web Special, and I got that, but got rid of the bearing set in the making.

Guessing to meet the 1500g regulation weight thats fairly standard in the UK. My local club which isnt serious at all, it doesnt have a spec class at all. Im running my car at 1300g so when i got to a bigger meeting i need to add a lot of weight to race!

Well when I race at any larger events I'll definetly have to use more weights than before
Although not while I'm using my "new" speedo

Having fun with graphite dust got the chassis eoutside edge done and the little rear top deck piece finished, still so many fiddly bits to do

I hated doing the sanding on my Rayspeed to. Actually I don't like sanding anything on my chassis's. That's why a tub is so nice in most cases.
