if the ID and OD (5.x mm X 10 mm) is the same then most likely it will work. i think i tried the HPI thrust bearing once and it worked fine.

How often to maintain rear oil diff ? Every 6 month ? Or every 1 gallon of fuel ?

i have tried it that way and i've also tried being lazy and just changing it whenever i felt like i needed to (but there should be no signs of leakage if you want to try this). and the car reacted the same. so i guess doing it every race is just overkill. although the nice thing about it is that, you get to check the car thoroughly (especially when changing all the bearings) and you get to see any possible damage internally easily that way. but then again, if the car is fine i don't rebuild everything. less rebuild=more track time.

I redo that stuff before every major race. Too much wear and tear on the plastic. I get tired of stripping out stuff.

That nothing, my buddy totally dismantle the whole engine, the whole suspension, and dismantle almost the whole car after every race. Clean every items including bearings and polishing them. I think his work is cleaner than in Four Seasons Hotels.

wow!!! now that really is overkill in my opinion. but then again, this is a hobby. if he enjoys doing that and is happy with it, then why not. from what i've seen in this hobby, there are a lot of ways racers enjoy it. this is from the racers i've known and what i've seen from them. some are collectors and enjoy buying new stuff and collecting. some are mechanics. some are those who just want to drive and some are a little bit of both. i like working on cars but i enjoy driving more.

I do that... I dismantle the whole car... wash every plastic piece with soap and a brush... lubricate any metal piece(apart from radio place suport and sorta)...

BTW... @ my home track is almost drag racing every lap. Any suggestion of how to get more speed on the 275~280ft straightway? car is as light as possible... rear wing as less as i can get, bearings ok, engine screeeeaming...
My other engine was clocked at only 61mph... This one is probably getting it faster, specially beaceuse of a new short pipe... any other suggestions?
