Yeah he did ... was pretty spectacular too. One of these days I need to clip out the video and do an "adventurous driving" edition.

Mark,PM me about the trip details.....I'll fill you in my trip to England..
I've used Boca in the past (not ceramic) and they do give great service. I ordered ther wrong size bearing for my engine and they exchanged it without question eventhough it was my mistake.

MarkP swears by Acer though ... he's got some.

I have the yellow ceramics in my r40..and it rolls as well as my tc3 nitro....

the 710 drivetrain is super smooth to start with.... it would be great with the yellow seals/..

Any types of bearings will need to be cleaned and lubed, otherwise they won't run free - Ceramic bearings are harder wearing, but it is better to look after them just as well as standard ones.

Cheers, Mark.
Mark, which bearings are included in the Acer set?

I guess these are included:
6x13 (5)
10x15 (8)
12x18 (4)
Any others like diff, steering, flanged (2 speed), belt tensioner ()?

Thanks!

None of the flanged bearings are in the set, but the metal shielded bearings for the centax and the bearings for the steering are also included - apart from these your list is complete.

Cheers, Mark.

I think they still have free shipping around the world. Their price set for the 710 is unbeatable.

Mark, I know that they run very free. Are those ceramic bearings also lighter than the stock bearings?

Well, for the price you pay, I don't mind. Besides what can go wrong with the ceramic bearings? Do people expect them to be replaced when they fail due when them are being misused?

If you put at places where you easily get smacked like mounting the front sway bar holder onto the lower front arms, those can bend when you take a swipe at the boards.
