I think doing the whole drivetrain with ceramic bearings might be a little overkill, but today I took my Max engine to the track after change of conrod and to ceramic bearings for both crankshaft bearings and that engine just went "zip zip". I'd say ceramic engine bearings are good investment.

I am selling an extra kit that I had bought as a spares kit. I now have enough spares not to need this kit anymore. The box is still unopened. See it on eBay at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=5905267778

I hope I am not breaking any rules here

Wheel Bearings....BRG018....12 x 21 x 5mm.......x12
Shaft bearings.....BRG025......6 x 13 x 5mm........x4
2-speed bearings..BRG006....6 x 12 x 4mm........ x2
Clutch bearings.....BRG001.....5 x 10 x 4mm........x2

The only bearings missing from this lot are the thrust bearings and the steering and brake bearings.

Incidentally, these bearings are the same size as the MRX3 except for the 2-speed bearings

Default shock of evolva

i guess most of you guys out there are quite experince with seting up the car. just a question, does this evolva torque steer when you full throttle from stationary stop? is it that the stock suspension is too soft ?

Thanks...Good luck to you too. The race should be pretty good with Barry Baker, Darin, Josh, and all the other Rev locals there racing 1/8th scale.
