If you are talking about the Toledo track, it's all about the way you setup for the sweeper. You can go thru the sweeper with out lifting, but if you miss you will pay for it!!!

P.S. Is it cold there yet, shur is here.
It's been chilly here too. But I'm sure nothing compared to your weather over there.

What's up Ira?

the r comes with option parts such as f & r unis, engine mounts, one way/solid front, rubber bands, wheel hexes, and some more
in regards to geometry, just switch the front uprights and the rear camber susppension mount and that;s it

gentleman81,

You're correct, Acer Bearings have Ceramics for both On-Road and Off-Road. The one you need for MTX4-R is Part or Product Number : CM10

Like this:

They are good bearings!

i think the best bearings are boca bearings. my lhs supplies a kit which is made specially for him, and the kit includes the set for mtx4/mrx4. they are orange seal ceramic hybrid bearings which has the grade 5 ceramic Si3N4 balls, and ABEC 7 tolerances.(best bearing of boca) I was told that they are OILED FOR LIFE. price is high though. 16$ a piece
