I really like the integy vibrating dish for cleaning bearings, so much better than just soaking bearings, even in half an hour it does twice the job of letting them soak over night
As long as the standard bearings hold up they will be staying, they're free enough for me after a good vibration cleaning
I have one of those Indi Sparkles, Herm, guess I need to get that critter out or like you said yesterday, I'll be knackered

The missus and my oldest both used to race, tried my best to put them off in the most subtle way.... they were a huge drain on resources

Better now im sponsored by the wife and kids got the priorities right at last

It's not the SD herm, it's the yoke pro and it is a very durable car.
