    Also be careful drilling, that hole enlargement process has to be absolutely center. Any slight deviation, your gear set will go POW! Shrapnel everywhere.

    Almost best to do on a lathe.

    The difference is little (not sure offhand) but they are far softer and give a bit more on impact. Though the durability is a bit less than the Badlands because of that. Those studs are evil looking,...

    Also check front shock towers at hinge pin inserts. They can sheer off. I do it all the time from big air.

    Middle bearing is 30x17x7mm outer is stock size. In theory this give carrier support all along the stub axel. I feel it overkill, just happy the inner problem bearing is augmented from original.

    They are super beefy in person. The inner bearing is upgraded to 32x20x7mm (stock 27x20x4mm) same as RPM rear carrier bearings. Those have held up great, so I’m hoping the same.

    Then yes, 1100kv should be great. Castle fans fit nice on that. You could almost go up to 25 t pinion if your just looking for speed. But 20 should be good.
