Perez, why are you trying to get down to 1525g?

The numbers I see on Roars website are 1725 minimum for nitro TC. Looks like your light already unless I'm missing something.

has anyone got a complete listing of the bearing sizes used in the MTX5?

...or a website to a reputable shop that sells a complete set of ceramic bearings?
i checked out acer bearings and it looks like it isn't a fulls et of bearings in the mtx5 kit

...boca bearings do not have a full set of mtx5 bearings available.

I think you will find most 'sets' leave out many of the smaller bearings, though you can usually get them separate, at more cost of course.

Roar's minimum weight limit is still 1725 grams. For now; the 1525 only effects the EFRA block(Europe). I don't believe IFMAR has ruled on this change

Pass you soon...

I think ABEC35 provides the essential bearings for drivetrains.. the 'left out' bearings dont really help in 'moving' the car.. the XCOs are some of the smoothest bearings i ever used.

i think the ABEC kit is missing some of the 2 speed shaft bearings and the clutch bearings right?

Yes, which you can get separately...

I feel those bearings may have loads higher than the others, so I personally use the cheaper GC3 ZZ metal shield ceramics for them..

ceramic bearings can carry as much load as steel bearings. They are used in nitro engines which exert more force than a 2 speed shaft, so ceramics on the shaft shouldn't be an issue.

the ABEC bearings are quite pricey and you don't get a full kit of bearings. I also read here or on another thread that the quality is not consistent
