RPM have released Oversized Front Spindle Blocks for the ECX Boost, Circuit 2wd, Ruckus 2wd & Torment 2wd. The Oversized Front Spindle Blocks feature a larger bearing size of 5x11mm (not included). The stock bearing size is 5x10mm and RPM state “One millimeter in diameter may not seem like much but that little change nearly doubles all load and fatigue ratings over the stock bearing size! That means better performance, longer life and more time between maintenance periods.”
RPM have built a rock solid reputation over the years, based on durable, reliable and flashy upgrades, so I have no problem believing their statement and if they turn out to be wrong, I would be shocked if they didn’t make good by it.
The RPM Oversized Front Spindle Blocks for the 2wd ECX Torment, Ruckus, Circuit & Boost will be available July 30, 2014 at a MSRP of $10.95 / pair. Part# 73292
