That's true. I'm looking into ordering one right now unless I can find a local hobby shop that has one in stock.

I have the Hudy one. The Novarossi one is very good probably the best but a bit expensive. It's one of those things that as a nitro racer is a really useful thing to have in your kit. I've even changed bearings trackside at a push with mine which kept me racing my best engine on the day...

Look.the best of two types is heat a bit the case and then use the puller.donot use it in cold metals.if you change bearings many times,the case been sized step by step. Reasulting in lost tolerance.

I was on the novarossi site looking at the specs for the new mito 12 engine. In the exploded view there are 2 different part numbers for the rear bearing, 16607 and 16608. The 08 is a steel bearing and 07 ceramic. If I'm not mistaken, the keep on 12 uses the same rear bearing in ceramic. Now my question, are the rear bearings in the keep on the same as the mito? Do they come steel all of a sudden? Or did they always come steel and I assumed they didn't? Sorry that's more than 1 question.

Front and rear steel bearings are now available for the Mito, Virtus & Keep-On these are new, and fit the engines with the stepped crank case, I suspect this is to keep customers happy with a cheaper alternative to the expensive ceramic rear bearing, this also fits the RB Engines with the same stepped crank case.

Are the Mito engines yet available in the US? I see they are offered in the bay via HK.
