Ceramics should last longer if properly maintained!
so what king of maintance do you need to do, the basics? were did you get them?

Default Maintance on Ceramic Bearings!

I got my bearing from ACER Bearings. After every 2 to 3 race weekends, I do a car maintance and all bearings are cleaned with WD40 and the re-oiled with the oil from ACER for the bearings. If something happens and I break a front upright and it needs to be changed, then I do the maintance at that point. Checking the bearings, belts, rear diff oil, thrust bearings, clutch shoes, and pullies are just part of the routine to keep your car working in top shape everytime you race.

Using the inner shock mounting holes on the shock tower = laying down the shocks. It will give you more traction or side bite.

Yeah but the highest first gear you can get is 17.59 and the gearing is way to low for the length of the track..

Any other ideas??

take out your clutch bell and take both pinions off and put in say the largest 1st pinion gear avaliable for the car or the 2nd largest which ever feels best for the track. Foam tyre size diameter will also effect the rollout of the car (top speed)

hope that helps

Yes most certainly.
Use Boca Bearing Yellow lightning ceramics.
Cheap, and unbelievably lighter, smoother, and longer lasting.
