New and Expanded Inventory of Deep Groove Radial Ball Bearings
The purpose of a radial bearing is to reduce rotational friction and support loads. This is achieved by using two races to hold the balls and to spread the load through the balls. As the bearing race rotates it causes the balls to rotate. The ball provides for substantially less rolling resistance and coefficient of friction than if two flat surfaces were rotating.

Round two of the North Carolina SCT Challenge Series was held this past weekend at MXRC Raceway in Siler City, NC. It was a successful day with podium finishes in both the 2wd and 4wd Short course truck divisions.
In the 4wd SCT division, I claimed TQ and finished the day 2nd overall. My TLR SCTE 2.0 ran smooth and was consistent the entire day on Pro-Line Blockade tires and an EVO body.
My Pro-Line Pro-2 SC truck got stronger throughout the day and I found myself on the podium once again with a 3rd place finish. I battled heat issues the entire day and was able to breathe a huge sigh of relief when the truck crossed the finish line for the final time. After the first A main the temperature gun showed my Viper motor had reached a staggering 248 degrees, the motor somehow was able to power the truck through the second A main and helped me capture some hardware. A new motor is on its way and my truck will be ready for round 3 when the series heads to Monroe, North Carolina.
The track changed drastically over the course of the day with heavy rains throughout the week the track was damp and muddy early on before a groove developed. A shower between the double A mains, changed the track conditions once again and the rain made the track very slick and many racers began having traction issues. The blockade tires kept both my trucks planted throughout the entire day and helped propel me to strong finishes in both classes.
Thanks to all my great sponsors! Pro-Line Racing, Bullit Performance R/C Hobby Shop, Viper R/C Solutions, Boca Bearings, Xpert Servos and Sire Screen Printing.
I attended our season opener at Hobby Hut Raceway in Audubon PA.
With over 140 entries ebuggy was the poplar class. We had 15 heats and ran 2 qualifiers. I ran etruggy and ebuggy with the etruggy class they ran all 12 of us in 1 heat to save some time was a little difficult but I managed to get around lap traffic placing me 2nd going into the main. With time restrictions we only ran single-A mains.
Had a couple of battles between 1st place and myself but with some small mistakes he started to check out. Finished 2nd and was very pleased with the results for my fist race with the truck.
With Ebuggy was a little difficult but still managed to qualify pretty good putting me in 3rd in the B main. In the first turn it seems to always be my luck I get taken out lol but I tried to gather up and put my work in it was going to be tough to get back to the front of the pack with competition being as close as it was. I knew it was going to be difficult by the end of the 10 minutes I wasn’t able to catch up placing me in 10th place.
Had a great time got to meet new people and made new friends. Was a good way to end the weekend.
