Thanks for your candid answer, Steve. While I'm disappointed that the products didn't and might not ever work together, I'm glad that I could come on here and ask you directly about it and get a clear answer.

I wish I would've known before buying it, but stuff happens.

Thanks again!

Steve, I see that you might be going to the KO race. Does that mean you are up for another race weekend of nagging setup questions?

Default Bearing

Hi Steve, I have a bad front bearing on my 3.5 and a couple other racers at the track have too. I'm thinking of going ceramic and was wondering if you can tell me if this is the right size. 1/2 x 3/16 ths x 10/51 Thanks PS I'm running in dusty conditions.

Latemodel,

Yes, that is the correct size for the bearing.

I find it strange you are all having the same problem. Are you spraying out your bearings with motor spray regularly?

If so, this can make the bearings fairly susceptible to failure due to the increased need for lubrication/maintenance.

Thanks for the fast reply. It is due to a severe lack of maintenance. One more ? . The rear bearing is better protected so should i attempt to check or change it? Thanks again

I very RARELY see a need to replace the rear bearing in a motor due to the low load that it seems to take during normal operation.

The front bearing does take the most load but most of the time a simple re-oiling of the bearing will help maintain it.

Steve -

Any chance of Novak making BL motors with removable sensor wires?
