seem to be a common problem, send it to either the shop it came from or the distributer

Do you guys keep a set of ball bearings for spare and are they break very easy?
When i was driving TC3 before, I had to replace some bearing every other race.

If you keep them clean, free of dirt and lubed, should last many hours, but.... $hit happens and isn't too bad to keep a pair of 6x13 and a pair of 10x15 ball bearings (the ones that go on the uprights).

Main problem with the bearings on the TC3/NTC3 is the small size of those, and the high stress that whitstand (suffered into myself).

Default Which body do you use?

I've just finished of seeing a video from one of our last national rounds, and made me curious, from the 10 Final runners, 7 were using the Stratus, 2 were using the Stratus 2.1 and one was using an Opel Astra DTM (whew! people is strange, is too ugly!). And make me wonder which body are you using for racing? Let's make a poll.

- Opel Vectra (an old well know forgot).
- Stratus.
- Stratus 2.1.
- Chrysler 300M (sheeeesh!)
- Alfa 156
.... (put your own if none of the other apply).

What kind of wheels are you using? Foams/Rubber?

Will keep a record of the answers and in about 15 days will publish the results.

Corse - I am running the 2.1, but after I use up the last one I have, I'll be switching to the original Stratus. I run on foams
