I had a TC5 for a bit and oprdered one HB DCJ not realizing they came one to a package. I have since sold the TC%, but still have the brand new DCJ. If anyone's interested make me an offer. I need this out of my hair!

Hi.

Are you sure about the bearing dimensions?. Hot Bodies TC bearings are 4mm thick, the same as TC5. Shouldn´t they be 4x5x10?.

Regards.

Positive. If you have an older TC5 manual there is a misprint on the bearing size. It's 3 x 6 x 10....I've bought and run plenty. The Hot bodies thickness doesn't matter as that is dependent on the hub bore depth from each manufacturer.

Hi again.

The Hot Bodies DCJ drive shafts came already assembled. Do you need to apply grease inside them?.

Is it recommended to wrap the joint?. I´ve seen people doing this with Xray or Arrowmax shafts, but these ones seem to be more protected.

Thanks.

It's always a good idea to grease or oil moving parts anywhere there is friction, so yes. I'd clean and check and lube them after each race day as well. Don't have to overdo it, just enough to keep them smooth and reduce friction. Personally I like the Associated black grease on mine...but your right they seem to be better protected.
