Not just the front bearing but the thrust bearing as well.

Try it. No loss in performance. Longer life for the bearings.

I had about the same size bearings and thrust bearings from the Centax I and I'm still using their original bearings.

I think I ready someone removed the receiver box, too... can anyone give me details on that mod. thanks.

I put my Trinity 5 cell

in a Kyosho balloon,and glue the whole thing to the door with shoe goo.....Then,If I need to change the battery,I untie the balloon,and take the old battery out....

Help…my R40 keeps pulling to the right, I check the set-up multiple times, I have -2 degrees on the rear and 0 on the front. And no matter what I do it will keep pulling right, to the point that I have to compensate nearly 5 degrees on my steering trim, I have completely tore the car down and cleaned all the bearings and made sure there is no binding going on. What could I have missed?? Anybody have and ideas? Could my chassis be twisted? How can check that w/o completely removing all the components?

Does anybody know what using the +2 rear blocks, or the front hingepin mounts flipped upwards does? I think that it is supposed to raise the roll centre of the car, but I am getting some conflicting information from various sources...........
