Hey guys,

I'm looking at what I can do for my F201 for our national TCS championships and it says in the rules that we can run aftermarket bearings so I have been looking at that as an area to target for extra performance. Has anyone got ACER bearings or equivalent ceramic bearings in their F201 and has it made much of a difference. I'd like to get a set of ACER's or Square bearings. I'm also looking at it for my TB Evo IV. What's people's experience of that???

I had Acer bearings in another car of mine. They are really smooth and can handle the abuse of use better than normal metal bearings. The performance comes with a premium price though. If you can afford it, then the sky is the limit.

Hi OVA, the F201 class is always very tough regardless of who shows up to race. I was looking forward to some people to show up to the nats this year, unfortunately they were not able to make it. However, there are a few new faces that did show up and are laying down some very impressive lap times. The mains are going to be fun!

Mark is one of the new faces here that has turned a few heads. After asking for some help, I provided him with a few things to try for the changing conditions here. He is sitting currently 7th. That's a great place to be with the competition being as it is. Please come back, you would have enjoyed the great weather and friendly atmosphere. Oh, BTW there are alot of Washington state folks that made the trek down here.

Thanks Tommi. Fun car at a fun event. Although there were times it felt like a ROAR national considering what was on the line.
