I hope you have better luck with boca bearings than I did. They didnt last a 2 day race weekend. First I tryed the top of the line ceramic's. Latter in the year I tryed there good steel bearings, same result- loose and making noise before the weekend was over. When I saw them at the IHOBBY convention boca's people told me I shouldn,t use 30% nitro its too hard on the balls.
I'll never buy boca bearings again.

Same experience here. nothing is better than the original bearings, specially engine bearings.
That is why I ask Staikosn 1 what is wrong with his bearings, because the PICCO Original bearings are Swiss precision bearings which last almost the entire life of the Picco engines.

You never try WPengines ceramic bearings.

Hand made in Italy on Swiss WIB bearings base and genuine grade 3 silicon nitride.

Default evo2 and evo3 swapping...

can i mix and match the parts between the .12 evo2 and evo3?

e.g. P/S from evo2 into evo3, crankshaft from evo3 into evo2, etc...and vise versa?

i only know that the rods can be used by both evo2 and evo3; how about P/S and crankshaft?

Yes you can, it actually uses the same piston/sleeve set on EVO 2 and EVO 3.

Performance wise I don't think it would do very well considering it is an on road motoroffroad you need more bottom end that's why they make 2 different motors one for onroad & one for offroad...
