Ran mine for 5 months almost every week without any problems. We have about 5 of them at my track and they are all fine.

If you do you might want to put a small bit of loctite on the bearing so that if can't move around or anything inside the aluminum hub.
So in other words you are saying that the only 'solution' is to find lower priced replacement as this particular size of bearings are inherently weak? Yes? In that case will a 5 x 11 bearing fit snugly in the upright or will they rattle around? 'Cos threadlock can't really fix a bearing that rattles in its hole.

If the 950 bearings are that weak why are people still converting to the aluminium knuckles and uprights then?

Those bearings are just weaker than the stock ones. The best advise. Is to stop hitting stuff.. or stock up on one dollar bearings from avid.

I only run metal knuckles in foam. The new v2 plastic knuckles are stronger. I'd asking recommend installing a hard bumper and kydex bumper.

Nope, But there might be smoke coming off your computer or spell checker from spelling "incorretly" incorrectly lmao. Geared correctly or not correctly, its fast lol

Note the diameter of the spur gear.. I doubt I am over geared..
