Awesome job throwing these vids together, let alone the in depth detail you go into.

I was skeptical about the effectiveness of chinese weights on a model this small. You totally blew my theory out of the water.

I was wondering if your only reason for placing the bearings in the polarity you chose was to cup the grease (as was explained in the video). It seemed to be that when simulating a load on the bearing (pressing the stack towards the head of the bolt), action seemed smoother with the open end facing the bolt head (which forces the bearings into their races). Do the bearings have polarity or are they just as effective in either orientation?

Please put me in the queue for the bearing and chinese weight mods. Again, nice work and thanks for taking the time to put together undisputable evidence of your findings.
