Dang, first a super secret top deck* and chassis, then withholding the setup. You guys are hardcore.

*It said Corally USA on it, so I'm not buying the "something he's trying on his own" line. :-D

syndrome, I guess that means you want the setup ey?

BTW, think what you want about the carbon fiber stuff, it is just things he's trying out.

allright heres the low down on the chassis, top deck and towers. The chassis is something i wanted to try. it has the the batts not cut all the way thru to provide a more consistant flex to the chassis. I played around with batt location. The top deck is a thicker top deck that i had made up with the corally usa logo in it. The towers have diff arch to the shock location and acouple other things. My setup was teh same as the birds thats on the site except i ran the option piston, 30 in the front and 24 in the rear. any other questions feel free to ask. lata guys

Hahaha, I'm just giving you guys a hard time. Thanks for the info Jeff, you pretty much ruined my conspiracy theory. :-D I've been having a lot of luck recently with your Snowbirds setup.

What size is the bearing used for the aluminum stearing knuckle?

The rear hub bearing fell out when I was taking the axle out but the outer race is still in the hub. Has anyone had this problem? Does anyone know how to get the race out of the hub?

Hey Brad,

If you can't tap the race out from the other side, here is a method.... one we use to take the bearing out of a crankcase....

Since the rear hub is aluminum, the race of the bearing is steel....

Take all the setscrew, ball and nut off the hub, put it in your oven at 400 degree (don't let Tiff knows), put it in there for about 12-15 mins, since the aluminum will expand quicker then the steel, the bearing race should fall right out, if not then give it a little help by tapping it on your wooden cutting board (again, don't let Tiff knows). If you need to use too much tapping force to get it out, then put it back in the oven for a bit longer....

Key thing is it should be able to fall out very easily. If not, that means it isn't hot enough. 400 degree isn't going to hurt it either.

But if anyone else has a better idea, I'll love to hear it too.

Dom

I will give that a try. Do you happen to know what size bearing goes into the aluminum stearing block?

If you are talking about the little ones where your "king pin" goes into, I believe they are 3x6mm
