    Bearings for the Outcast

    I'm going to order bearings for my outcast from Avid racing. Are the bearings the same for the Kraton, talion, and typhon? Reason I'm asking is because they don't specificly list the Outcast. Thanks!

    Ceramic bearings in drivetrain

    Ok.....would it be detrimental to use ceramic bearings in the driveline of the outcast? I'm talking about using them strictly for the front, center, rear diffs and ring and pinions. Can they withstand the abuse. I would use steel bearings at the wheels.

    The track i run on is a very loamy dirt track. The problem is its next to a river that periodically floods and dumps alot of sand on the track. My stock bearings in my typhon went out really fast so i replaced them with sealed AVID bearings. I hear these were some of the best but after a few...

    Repacking bearings

    I've been bashing in the snow with my Kraton and the Avid Revolutions just can't keep the crud out, especially the rear hubs. I popped off the rubber seal, blasted them clean with the CRC red can. I found this grease at the auto store. It feels to be about the right viscosity for these small...

    Sealed bearings upgrade

    I noticed I some grinding + seized wheel bearings, so I took the opportunity to start replacing all externally facing bearings with sealed versions. Another member mention AvidRC for bearings, which has most at $1.00 ea, so I jumped all over it. I have to give a shout out to http://avidrc.com/...

    Sealed bearing kits?

    Anyone have recommendations on sealed bearings? While pulling my diffs apart earlier this week I noticed the bearings are all 'shielded' but not the 'sealed' type.

    Cleaning R/C bearings

    Running in water - A lot of RTR's - including the Arrmas - are Water Resistant. Yes, I know Arrma and others say Water Proof, but that is not true. My fishing buddies have a saying - water will destroy anything that is not water, or fish. :) You can't stop water, you can only slow it down...
