I am surprised I have no comments on here. Anyways, you all have to try the new thrust bearings! The diff action is absolutely the smoothest and most consistent I have ever felt. I wish I would have installed them on our endurance race car... Just did not have time... On the track, the car is even more precise and I feel like the lateral grip increased. It doesn't hurt that ceramic bearings are lighter as well... :P

I've been meaning to order mine, but I thought I'd wait until the WTF2s are in. I can't believe no one has come out with a thrust bearing for the MR-02 earlier. ATM has it for the AWD diffs, but not 2WD.

Look forward to trying both items mentioned here.

This is still a "regular" Bearing, not thurst type, but ir has been manufactured with extremely tight tolerances to ensure better diff action...

ATM has had a ceramic 3 x 6 x 2.5 since I can remember...

I've had a few and have been waiting on some diff parts...

-----

Curious about the switch to ceramics... I thought you've
been preaching they didn't matter...

Also, weren't these 51s supposed to be out a week ago?

Thanks for the heads up.

And these are meant to be used as thrust bearings, not for the axles (although you can use them if you like, if you can justify the $5.00 price tag...) I will still use steel bearings on the axles and front wheels...

CT: I'll take a pic of my diff and the slight mod I did on the thrust bearing. I'm sure you'll like it.

Talk to you soon!

Bearing are ordered. I am looking forward to try them out.

Regarding the different bearings out there. The ATM bearings mentioned have been used here for some time ago, until Reflex came out with firstly the Avid, then the high grade bearings.

I did a temp measure on them after a series of laps, and the RR and Avid bearings RR offers are the ones that runs absolutely the coolest. That tells me that they are superior regarding friction.
It was not a large difference, but after a number of measures the trend was absolutely there.

Just responding to trav who thought no one had come
out with that type of bearing lol.

No harm meant.

If I’d have known, I would have waited...
Better quality and cheaper is always a win.
Assuming they are better quality.

-----

I was just curious in that why you’d pull a u and
offer a ceramic thrust bearing at a higher price if
steel ones are perfectly capable and it seems like
you’d be able to get some good deals on ones
similar to your other offerings…

Adding another 5 bucks to already expensive diff parts
hurts lol. I think some might still be waiting on that
promised $50 diff…

-----

Not one day my friend…

I emailed you last month (24th), and was told the gears would
be done early the next week… I didn’t get anything from
you since then and we are now closing in on the 03 debut.

The fact that they came late doesn’t bother me as things
happen out of your control, but at least give me a heads up
if you told me otherwise. I let it slide after once, but
since it has happened twice... c'mon man.

None of the shops I frequent pull that and if they do have a
discrepancy somewhere, they usually let me know; even with
the language barrier and differing time zones and whatnot. I
know with their international sales they run through a huge
volume of orders, they run their own events, and god knows
what else they do, but they still give me that common
courtesy at the least...

Your in-house stuff seems pretty cool and I haven't been
disappointed with the stuff I bought before, but work
with me...

-----

R, I’m not sure where I mentioned that the rr bearing sets
weren’t a good value or how they came into the thread since
we were talking about thrust bearings lol… I’ll take
your measurements with a grain of salt; the simple test for me is
basically to spin the wheel or diff you put on. With that being
said and trying out the rr sets...

I still run the same PN ceramics I've been running and have long
since sold the others…

Though I admit after these run their life, since I'm not made
out of money, I'm going the other route lol.

Getting any set of cheap bearings, drying them out, and generally
taking good care of them will probably net you a pretty good spin
and good results so the rrs shouldn’t be a bad deal...
Assuming they are still under 10 bucks.
