can i use this bearings?
you can get those bearings fron Altuntaş in Karaköy. I have about 12 left in my box as they keep blowing up. I gave a set to Deyvi in Ankara race. mind though they are alittle expensive here as they are off size bearings.

order them from one of the online shops and in the mean time I can replace the ones you have broken. You can replace mine when you receive yours...

Use the bearing spacers that Tamiya has out for the wheel hubs, they help a lot. My bearings are around a yr old, and still fine, just upgrading the wheel bearings to Ceramics and be interested to see how they go.

Hi All...For those of you who are interested in the setup I ran at the Reedy Race, please have a look at the attached setup sheet. Keep in mind there are small notes on the sheet regarding which ball nuts were used. This setup feels very good but can get a little loose if over-driven . I've also attached a picture of the car for reference.

Here is video shot by Mr.McGoo (thanks man!) that shows it in action.

Let us know if you have any questions.

Enjoy!

I don't know of anyone that uses a spacer there. seeing as that ball mount is the king pin.

excellent!! Rod, quick request, can you please post a picture of your car from the "other" side?? It seems you're not using the air scoop and where the hell did you put the GTB condenser?? It looks indeed a very clean setup!!

Another question, if you don't mind.... how much weight your car end up with? I've noticed you have some lead around... did the Reedy have any weight limitation (more than 1350g) or that was just for balancing the car?? and you're using hotbodies sway bar holders, right??

thanks a lot,
al

Cheers Rod,
One question, how was your steering setup? spacers behind ball joint, type of ball joint used etc

Cheers
Ed

Newbie question. Tell me how you can use cyclone belts with that 3-racing 18t pulley, because cyclone`s own centerpully is 16t?

Cyclone's diff pulleys are 39t, so that's why they are slightly longer
