got a problem with those two bearing adapters for the rear inner bearings.
the spacer in the middle of the inner and outer bearing is blocking the way for the inner bearing to get pressed in if you understand? can i remove the spacer?
problem is that my bearing inner diameter is smaller than the original bearing.

what to do??

We did a head to head shoot-out between the Serpent SUS Central body, the R10, The R03, the whip and the dome a few weeks ago and everyone thought that the Serpent SUS body was best followed closely by the Parma R10. The whip and dome made the car looser and the Parma 03 did not have enough steering. I hope this help.

i think this should help you with that problem and these help with the stress on the one bearing and help 2 of them work together

Even on the tightest front belt setting my belt would stretch and become loose. A friend of mine made me this front belt tensioner. Now my front belt last about 2x as long as in the past.
