Agreed, the Align 1.2mm bearings are pretty crappy. You'll probably push the inner race right out of the bearings while preloading. I did my own version of Heim's preload with better bearings, and the results were spectacular. I can't "wait for the weights." Align's new tail hub mod with the single 2mm bearing isn't going to do you a favor if you want the Chinese weights. Those weights will put too much side (lateral) load on that bearing, given the centripetal force pulling on them at high throttle. It's gonna take a good set of 1.2mm bearings with a proper preload to handle the lateral load. It's all going to be worth it in the end. Neall
