I'd contact Mr. Maxy Velazco ASAP 1-888-786-6299. He can get you the car and parts at very good price. He's the best

Yes it will fit but will require shimming and may not be the best fit but it will work.

You will need a serpent pulley though foe right internal ratio

yes, they are cheap. but that's why my question pops up. couldn't that be a bad thing? besides that, do you have to remove the seal (I think it's rubber) to clean and oil the bearing for this particular bearing?
I am thinking about buying a set, but I wonder if it's really advantageous compared to the stock serpent bearings.

thanks

The acer bearings are top notch. many nitro and EP TC's use them- they are really good. you wont go wrong with them.

You can also try "boca bearings".

Default Hey

Hey Guys. Just thought I would stop in and say hi. Just picked up a S400, going to build the car sometime this week and probally get out to the track next week with it. Any tips/tricks I need to know for the car. I am already going to build with ceramic nitride diff balls. But besides that I didn't see anything in this forum that was being replaced. How is the wear on the front spool for those of you that have had the car for a while? Thanks for any info.

Wear on the driveline has been pretty good for me. It has the typical driveline lash that all the cars I have run a spool on have had.

I have been really impressed with the durability on the car. I have about 40 runs with the car so far, all with a 3.5 or 4.5, and the only parts that are broken were because of me ( thrust bearing = loose dif ), and ( CVD = pipe in the way ).

The car is responsive to changes, bit not overly sensitive, which makes is very forgiving.
