I'm already using ceramic bearings in all my cars along with ceramic diff balls and think there the best thing going.Since switching to those bearings I havent had a bearing come close to binding up and the diff balls show no sign of wear.So that said I'm gona put a set in my new x-ray car as soon as it comes off back order.Tires that will be a great help ,cant wait to start testing them.

Yeah, I think you guys are gonna be really happy about the bearings. I for one am really excited about testing them out.

As far as tires, watch out TRC and Jaco here we come!!!

Seriously, with the industry having only *two* serious indoor foam tire companies it's begging for us to get in the mix.

Dont know if it can be done or worth while but currently when you buy foams, what is the first thing you do, you cut them down smaller. If you can start with a smaller tire so people dont have to cut down, you should be able to get more tires out of a sheet I would think. Then because of getting extras tires out of sheet you could sell a fraction cheaper than others and still make the same money because you got more tires out of it.

Either way, should be nice. I guess I will have to try the ceramic bearings at some point. I never felt John car at Jackson but was told that it was very free.

Before last year he was so superstitous(sp?). But after I raced with green cars, number 13, eat peanuts in the pits, I actually got him to eat peanuts in the pits to try and change his luck. Watch every now and then he will have green in his car too.
