I know Acer has the right size. Since you're in SoCal, you can just cruise over to Tamiya and get the stock ones if nobody has them in stock right now.

I tried Acer but their bearing came with rubber seal that could rub against the shim between the bearing and the wheel hex. The RC4Less bearings also are of a better grade. Never tried Boca so I don't know. I don't remember how much was the set but it was $100 or less.

Tamiya sell a replacement bag of 4 (51090) for 700 yen or roughly $7.

Thats not too bad, are they a steel seal, or teflon? I dont like the rubber shields on the Acer bearings just because they cause so much drag on the inner race.

They are metal sealed Randy. The bearing are great but I'd buy them from RC4Less just beacause Bruce is great to work with.

Hi Guys,

For replacment bearings, you guys can check out our Replacement Bearings section in The Racer's Corner

Also, for those that are looking for ceramic bearings, we have several Ceramic Bearing kits available, which are OEM Yokomo ceramic bearings. I've been running the ceramics on my TRF415, especially for the wheel hub bearings. Dave Jun over at Tamiya suggest tighter tolerance bearings in order to reduce some of the slop in the hub carrier

by the way, Randy, I did not see patrick on Saturday. I'll be there again this Saturday, let me know if you or Patrick is going to be there

fpart: Yes I'm running a 415. Purchased an old one just before the Worlds. You know me, I like to be different. Way too many xrays in our area and I'm always partial to Tamiya's.

Since I started running the car, I've gottten 4 other guys onto the car. I even force Raul to dump that Schumacjer of his and get a 415 after opening a can of woop ass on him the first night out with my car.

If you need set-up tips. send me an e-mail. I will be at South Shore this Sunday

No, I have no clue who you are...

Steve,

Have you been able to find an aftermarket diff that is made for the 415?

Thanks,

Apex

Speaking of bearings, I received a spray lubricant for bearings from the Tamiya worlds. The stuff looks and is very light, haven't run the car yet to see if the oil breaks down.

Hey Steve, I hadn't ordered your ceramics because I thought they were Squat Dry bearings which I have had bad luck with, I have heard the Yokomo's are very high quality though, I'll propably just go with those.

Patrick blew out last weekend, but he should be there this Sat, I'm gonna keep the delrin outdrives for spares, but if I can just exchange the C-Hub for Spindles, that would be great.
