Boca Bearings
My name is Robert Fields this is the second set of boca bearings ive installed on my fathers reels. The first was a Shimano Calcutta 50XT I couldn’t find the bearing set on the website so I contacted boca bearing company by phone and had a great experience they even allowed me to mail in my old bearings so they could be matched up with the correct bearings I needed. The same goes for the Shimano Bantam Curado 200 I just got done installing the new ceramic orange seal bearings in , the service was great and extremely helpful and now both fishing reels spin better than when they were brand new. Thank you boca bearings for breathing new life into my fishing reels

Received the two sets of bearings for Lews reels within several days of placing order. Bearings are correct size and are nicely packaged in individual bags with the bearing code number clearly labeled. This makes re-ordering simple if additional bearings or sets of bearings are needed. Also included was a detail of removing bearing shields and a very nice Boca Bearing mouse pad. This is obviously a very well run company and I wish them continued success.

Race recap for Newberry RC Park - Club Race, 04-05-2014

Raced the open 1/8 ebuggy class in a rocket round qualifying format.

Q1 was a solid race where I ran in the front three for the entire race. Unfortunately,
glitches with either my personal transponder or the scoring system dropped 
two of my laps. While I was pleased with the run, the result did not reflect the
way I ran.

Q2 found me using a borrowed club transponder. It worked flawlessly and every
lap was counted. However, glitches showed up in another important piece
of racing equipment, my controller….my Spektrum DX3R controller. Seems that 
the throttle trigger spring let loose on the second lap. Needless to say, that little spring that
literally costs pennies, cost me a good run. I never would’ve guessed that driving
and controlling a vehicle without throttle/brake control would be so difficult.
(This is where I thank a fellow racer that I just met that day….He was kind enough to loan
me his DX3S controller for use in the A-main.) Thank you Stephen R.!!!!!
I limped my way around the track and at least finished….two laps down. Other gremlins 
appeared during the downtime between races. My SH ZCar sheared a rear a-arm
pin/screw during that qualifier as well and needed replacing. No problem!

Fortunately, my fast lap on the day landed me in P3 for the A-main. With borrowed controller
in hand and borrowed transponder in place, we were off and running. By the time
we came out of turn one on lap one, I dropped 3 or 4 positions by getting tangled up in a pile
of vehicles. We shook ourselves off and off we went! By lap three, I was chasing down
the leaders. Within the next couple laps, due to a bobble by the leader, I took the lead.
With a bobble of my own in the last 90 seconds of racing, I lost the lead but was able
to fight back to take the win! This class of racers were no rookies! We had some real
talent in this class and it was a lot of fun racing against these folks.

This is my second race of the year with the same result, at the same track making me
the first repeat winner in any class at this track. It felt good to know that I can rely so 
confidently on those Boca Bearing Company yellow seals. They have yet to let me down
after a few months of regular use last year and a little time off this year.

Thanks for your continued support in a year that is setting up to be one of my personal
best!

I have received bearings which I ordered for my fishing reels. Everything is fine. Thank you for the quality product and prompt shipping.

Q1 presents some 10th scale racing. This quarter I was only able to do 10th scale racing. I have learned a lot with set ups. Looking forward to some more 10th scale and some 8th scale racing!

Here is a picture on my 8th scale that we traveled to Lubbock and did some testing at a race on March 30. This weekend was spent in the car quiet a bit!

The outdoor season opener was a blustery start.  It was a “Great” start even with the wind chills at 38 degrees.  The first race of the outdoor season was at LCRC Raceway with 120 entries.  A good turnout for the cold weather.  I had a Super run with both the 4WD Short Course and the E-Truggy.  The 4WD Short Course placed me after heats in the starting grid at 4th place with a finish of a 3rd.  The E-Truggy was a 5th place start and ran 2nd most of the race.  A disappointment when my I ran out of juice with two laps to go.  I did not complete the last lap but still had a finish of 5th place which was no worse than where I started.  Next week off to the first Roar Race for Region 2 in Hayes, VA.  Maybe the weather will be just a little warmer than our first race here in Pennsylvania.
