Honestly rhis is the first problem. I just thought they would have the same policy of refunding the money of parts not in stock or giving you the optoin to wait like I have experienced w/ rc-mushroom and rc-union.

I think I will just keep emailing them, I don't think such a big company is out to jip you, I just wish it would be a smoother transaction. I shouldn't have to be on their case to get feedback.

Default Bearings

I had a bad bearing giving me lots of handeling probs. It had partially siezed and my car would spin out in erratic moments entering or exiting fast corners. It also caused the tire to chunk.

What do you guys recommend for cleaning and bearing maintenace? I know this is a simple querstion, but do you guys clean then after each race/practice day?

I think you just have to replace them on a regular basis. I clean my bearings every now and then. Sometimes the cleaning works and sometimes not. Most of the bearings last for quite a bit but the 6x12 wheel bearings seems to go bad fairly quickly.

Default 6x12 bearing

Yeah, that's the particular bearing that failed. Are all the company bearings the same, I got a complete metal shielded bearing set, I was just wondering if rubber shielded is better?

But the set was like 20 bucks, not too expensive and I will have like 8 of them so I hope not to have the problem w/o remedy for next time.

I've tried them all and they are about the same. I think it has more to do with impacts than dust/dirt that ruins them. I just pick up whatever is the cheapest I can find since I replace them often anyway.

Got to email them again

i placed my order for the rr conversion about 3 weeks ago from rc model. a few days later, they refunded my paypal payment stating "no stock". from what people are saying here, kyosho doesn't make it anymore. sorry to here about your problems but i'm sure it will be corrected. i pieced together my conversion with kyosho and 3racing parts. changed my setup a little and it handles great.

Yeh from what I hear, I got my RR converion kit in the last shippment from RC-union of them. Theres nothing special about the kit, you can buy all the parts on their own though, you just dont get the instructions.

One thing I havent found yet are RR sticker sheets anywhere.

He he, something has to give on this car from the impacts . I went the same route, I'll just have to check them more often.

Thanks Jeffrey,
