anyone here tested the NEW pro front upper arm:

Motonica 05-116B Ergal Mount
Motonica 05-117B Ergal Mount

Do they provide better on power steering or off power steering?

Also i hear they sit lower than the standard plastic parts


Cheers
Frankie

The arm mounts are arriving now. I have not yet used them but I am not sure if they are any different than the stock mounts in terms of arm position.

Good evening racers...
Do you have any issues with drivetrain bearings?
I try to clean them 2 days and i cant make them work smooth, almost everyone has an issue!!
I think a bearing set ACER is a must for that car!

I replaced my bearings with Protek from amains - they seem to work better and smoother, thou i do run my bearing sin an ultrasonic cleaner, the apply nice fresh Huddy bearing Grease for lubrication!!!!

Give the bearings once cleaned and re-grease about 5-10mins on track and it rolls very nice and smooth.....

Just maintain the bearings on a regular basis just like any other part on the car.... keeping the car clean and fresh will always provide better life on all parts

NEW modification from Robin D'Hondt if no one knows who he is, run a search on REDRC website.... funny enough it helped with rear grip and gave some front end push..... thou i did run with 37 fronts


Only club days will tell if it helps with laptimes










Its worth a try
