Default Pan car wheel bearing tool

OK so I have a couple from the first run of these. I must say they look and perform much better then my original.

If you did not get to see or try the tool at the cancer race heres the low down. I got tired of how hard it was to properly seat the front bearings. I broke two trying to get them in. I made a tool that properly aligns the outer race with the inner bore on the rim. It also guarantees that both bearings are on the same plane and are not fighting each other creating friction. Less friction = more speed. I also designed the handle to press on the flange and not the inner race so it doesn't side load and destroy the bearing before you even hit the track.

It works with both 1/12 and 1/10 front wheels. I tested it successfully with CRC, BSR, and JACO rims

So for the first while im going to offer them at a discounted price just to get them out there.

They will be at lou's speedway and VIA Email [email protected] for $30.00 until Jan 1st. Then they will be 35.00.

I will be attending the Indoor Nats and I will have a few with me.

Is this tool supposed to help get the bearings alligned in the wheel and or to get the bearings in a little easier? I just ream the rim a little and the bearings just slide in snug!

It does both without modifying the rims.
