clermont has it as 2051, the front and back look the same. i would email them before you order it though. i would make sure it comes with the gears(if you need them)


here's the link: http://www.clermontmotorsports.com/servlet/Detail?no=36

i guess you had a bad bearing, looks like it melted the plastic, these dont have sealed bearings so they do need to be greased once in a while. either your lhs has the lube in a container with a special point to get the bearings greased or i am sure tower hobbies has bearing grease. How much have you used your redcat?? How much fuel??

Buy some HPI MT2 door holders and steering arms , just change out some bearings, drill some holes in the new parts and you got it in aluminum. Working on lower front arms

i would grease the bearings every 1/2 to 3/4 gallon fuel, also depends on where your running, dirt, street etc. Its always good to break your rc down every once in a while, make sure things are greased, oiled, bolts and screws are tight. These are like real cars and need maintaince too.

Wow, i am very suprised to hear it, i have ordered from him several time, anything that comes from him directly took about 3-5 day tops, if he didnt have it and it came from recat it took over a week.
