Does anyone have a link to the latest greatest setup. I am building a kit for someone and they want me to put the latest greatest on the car. I told him Kit setup but you know if you have Drakes setup you will drive like Drake. Lol

Maybe state what kind of track y'all will be running on. I have a bunch of drakes setups, don't use any of them since they don't work for my track though.

Adam Drake has a good video on rear hub positions:

Curious, has anyone replaces front hub bearings lately? I am looking to order a full set for the buggy, but am wondering should I order standard rubber shielded bearings, or splurge for a set of ceramics? Personnaly, I have never had much issue with rubber shielded standard bearings, yet wonder giver the change to universals, and the smaller bearings in the R series cars what anyone else might have found out.

Is there more wear and tear than the previous non R platform, or same?

Oh, the conditions I run in are fairly dusty and humid. Some times even during rain.

The NMB's look nice haven't tried them yet but some of the team drivers run them.

The mp9 kyosho bearings work great too. I bought a set off dollar hobbyz a while back. They seem like plain old 688zz metal shield bearings but they're very smooth and free. It seems like they use a oil or lighter grease or something.

I've been running the plain rubber shield bearings degreased and re-lubed with a drop of bearing oil. I've had good luck so far even on a really dusty track. Oiled bearings along with center uni's really frees up the drivetrain. The 8x16x5 bearings do seem to last a lot longer and need less maintenance than larger bearings used with the cvd's.

You will like the NMB bearings. Not only are they very free spinning, they last longer too... Definitly an improvement over the older bearings.

In case you guys didn't notice it, I've created the Wiki for this thread. Similar to the old '1st page' posts, but now it appears at the top of every page.

Anyone can edit it, but just keep in mind that EVERY edit is recorded and we can see who did it. Abusing it will result in a forum ban.

My suggestion is that if you have a new item you want to post on the Wiki and aren't sure if you should, just post it in the normal part of the thread and ask. If you see a majority in agreement, post it.
