Woow ! What time is that? It must be dead early morning in US. Kudos to these Acer chicks... I mean these guys.

What about the small bearings in the ball diff itself (not referring to the loose balls)? Are they included?

Anyway, Acer sells the 4 mm ceramic nitride pro balls (10 pieces) for USD 12.99.

How about Boca?
The Centax 3 uses two 5x10x4 normal bearings. Check on the single piece purchase of the ceramic nitride pro bearings. USD 7.99 each.

Boca sells these SMR105C-ZZ #3 -53 or SMR105C-ZZ #3 -59 bearings for USD 17.95 ! Ouch !

I think neither has the ceramic thrust bearings.

Not sure - they said only the centax bearings aren't included.

After conversion, that would be about approx USD 335. The Euros have been fluctuating as of late...

If they say Centax bearings not included, I hope they do not mean the 2 normal 5x10x4 bearings. If they do not include the Centax thrust bearing, that is understandable...

Ask bbntc3. I think he used this on his kFactory Centax of the NTC3. I think he likes it very much. I believe they use the same thrust bearing size as the one used in Centax 3.

:-( The lawnmowers have a race this weekend and I have to help out No driving this weekend and it looks like rain today, so I probably can't get to the track :-( It's quite a few weeks now that I haven't been able to run
Looks like the earliest I can run will be the 21st :-(
