New from X Factory:
After successful launch of the new X – 6 Squared Kit, the first Kit where X Factory has sold the entire car, the Ohio company now announces release of all the bearings in the 6 Squared as individual parts. These bearings fit many different cars which use U.S.-dimensioned bearings, not just X Factory vehicles, at great prices.
For example, the ubiquitous 3/16” X 3/8” rubber sealed bearing used as wheel bearings on so many cars, a pack of four just $3.89. One large bearing-only company sells them @ 99 cents, but X Factory beats even that price on this item.
Rubber sealed 3/8” X 5/8” bearings used as outdrive bearings in X Factory and AE cars, pack of two just $9.99, about half of AE’s RRP! X Factory also has the little bearings inside the X Factory and AE diff, 2 per pack, and the 1/8” X 1/4” bearings found in many steering assemblies, 4 per pack.
Completing the line-up are 3/16” X 3/8” metal shielded (good in enclosed places like transmissions) 2 per pack @ $1.89 (!) and the 3/16” X 1/2” rubber sealed bearing used in the X – 6 Squared and B-44 rear hub, 2 per pack.
Off-road racing is very hard on bearings because of the shock loadings from jumps and bumps and the dusty environment, so drivers change bearing frequently. A good quality supply of the bearings that fail most often at great prices will be welcomed.
Fine hobby stores around the world will soon have the X Factory bearing line-up in stock, and the bearing line-up is available now at www.xfactoryrc.com
