    How old were the bearings? Did you spin them when you installed the gpm?

    Not sure how old that bearing was exactly. I usually change this bearing everytime i service my diffs, as ist somewhat hard to get to..
    I redid my rear diff maybe 3 weeks ago, i think i put a new and fresh bearing in at that time, but might be wrong and i forgot that. Could also be a manufacturing defect on the bearing. I cleaned the remainigs a bit and the pieces doesnt look to worn (besides broken ). But hard to tell exactly.

    I really like my RPM wide wheelbases wheels, but i think they are certainly not nice to the bearings.

    Looks great! Do you have GPM shocks? If so do you like them? Any problems leaking?

    I'm pretty sure those are exotec shocks.

    Question on the exotek shocks.. What sold you on them versus the traxxas TiN shocks? Just curious

    How is that camera held on? Here's a thought - send a picture of the mounted camera, I'd be interested!

    Don't look now, but that's one filthy bad baja. Thanks a million for the great vid.

    For me and others, thanks for being there when no one wants to be!

    No worries man, as far as how the camera was mounted I just drilled a hole in the roof, not bigger then the install mount but not too small either, squeezed one end through and connected it to the top ill post some pics in the morning, nothing fancy but it gets the job done.

    This is about the 5th time I've watched that vid - it doesn't get old. Thanks for the post

    Today I had to replace the last RPM knuckle on my Merv. I don't know why, I just have the best luck with HR. I dropped it in and everything is fine again.

    Today I broke the center driveshaft. So I ordered a new one and while I was at it I ordered a set of Exotek shocks. They are pretty expensive but they look tough and hopefully they don't leak like the stock ones.

    I have seen your videos and what you put your merv through with the exotek shocks that was the biggest reasons why I bought them.

    Test drove the E Revo Body with the mounted camera... Will shoot in the field again this week, hopefully there will be lots of mud and maybe some speed runs...

    Well, I changed out my first Merv servo today. Surprisingly enough, it only took me about 30 mins and I didn't make any mistakes, wooo-hooo!
