Question to eddiethefish

I lost the brake pins same as you did. They do not have part number. I assume they come in combination with other parts. I lost a horizontal pin and a vertical pin. How did you do to get them?

Thanks
Jose
I think I use the spare parts pin from Serpent. Lemme double check.

Hello Jose,

It's a 3x20 pin. I couldn't find the part number on the Serpent, but I'm sure if you use the cap screw 3x20 it would work the same, and a lot easier to find.

Default bearing matters

I first thought my Squat Precision ball bearing used through out my car is the most expensive set of MTX-3 bearings, until I see this MTX-3 bearing set.

If you no longer use the harden steel 1st pinion 18T, ship it over. I only have the 17T!

of course

they are ceramic bearings

in my opinion, they are WAY too good for recreational RC use
the ordinary bearings are fine! there is not a need for those
