    Bearings after bashing!!

    Installed a new rear hub today after an awesome bashing session on sunday there and it was a little stiff with all the mudd. Would you normally strip your car down after this and clean everything? How often should bearing be cleaned/replaced??

    difference between bushings and bearings

    I noticed that the right left rear tire of my nitro stampede had a lot more play in it than the other tires. Under hard acceleration it would rotate and shift at an odd angle causing the car to sometimes become unstable or sway back and forth. I took it apart tonight and noticed that it has...

    [Advice Savage X4.6] Clutch Bell Bearings Longevity

    I had a set already gernade, it seemed premature but I am positive the backlash was set improperly from the factory which in turn being new to the hobby I did not know it should have been checked before the first run.
