Awesome!

I would just use a standard bearing. The inner should carry most of the load and that outer bearing should last much longer because of it.

Bearings are supplied with the mod.
  • Gears are setup so they do not spin freely and feel gritty. Testing has shown this is the best setup for durability.
  • Different axle housing and different gear sets can have different results, I can only set them up with the parts I have and count on the tolerances being somewhat close.
Very worthy looking mod, on my list!

Nice work on these, what a bummer about the VP not having enough material...they shoulda done it in the first place...

Good work picking up all the slack in design errors and helping to fix them!

Just ordered the truss, gonna get these soon...

Kinda....... But that one bearing does a Whole Lot! It not only puts a bigger, better, badder bearing in there, but it gives a Way better gear mesh as well.. like zero slop!

Well worth every couple extra pennies spent on the Dlux housings.
Just think, get 2 housings from Dlux and even if it Only saves 1 set of gears, the little bit extra spent on the housings is still less then the cost of that 1 set of gears..

Curious as to the pricing of two housing w/ your CF trusses? One front, one rear.

Thanks.
