I think it is. In the third picture (from the battery side) you can just see a slot cut... At least I think you can. Anyways, got a spare top deck to cut up and try now, let's see how it goes!

I agree they look Roche ones I have been running them for about a month now, I was expecting to kill the driveshaft pins but the are such a good fit there is very little play that could cause wear, would suggest this as am upgrade to anyone

Great thanks I see what you mean now, I wasn't even looking at that! Must have had it machined out!

perhaps he could raise / lower the motor position by using this method.

Raced on low traction, bumpy asphalt on Sunday...on 4th qualifier my car felt really, really good...when I got back to the pits I discovered I forgot to tighten the top deck screws after changing spur gear. 4 screws already had fallen out...car was the best I ever had it

LoL, don't ya hate when that happens! But it's true, happened to me before. Makes ya wonder sometimes. Just dip the tip of the screw in thread lock, maybe they won't fall out next time..

You need the 5x10x4 for the bearings that are inside the c-hub and uprights...when you replace them don't lose the spacer that is in-between them inside the hub/upright.
