Boca Bearings MX Engine bearings

Boca Bearings MX Engine bearings

Boca Bearings is pleased to announce their new and expanded line of MX Engine bearings for radio controlled engines. RC engines have evolved and become even more powerful. Today they use more nitro fuel and come under greater thrust loads than in the past. The nitro content can dry the thin stock bearing retainer very quickly making the whole bearing susceptible to premature failure when subjected to high radial and thrust loads. These MX bearings have a unique and new internal design to increase load capabilities that allows them to work under harsher operations where shafts come under excessive side and radial load. These bearings are available in both a standard high-speed version with either chrome steel balls or races, or as a ceramic hybrid, with ceramic balls and chrome races. For a limited time Boca Bearing will be offering an additional $10 discount on all MX bearing kits. Full bearing kits are available for engines such as Nova Rossi .21/12/15/21/28 size engines, OS 15/18/20/21/25/26/28/30/32/37/40 size engines, Picco 15/21/28/40/45 size engines, Collari, Sirio and more.

Boca Bearings Gold, Silver & Bronze standard line

Boca Bearings Gold, Silver & Bronze standard line

The Boca Bearing Company have announced their new Gold Standard, Silver Standard & Bronze Standard line of 5mm x 10mm clutch bell bearings. As RC drivers continue their quest for more speed and better performance, the clutch bell is a constant source of problems due to excessive heat build up, which can result in the bearings failing prematurely. For the expert driver looking for the best performance the ideal solution to the retainer issue is to do away with it altogether. The Gold Standard bearing is the ultimate clutch bell bearing designed with the serious racer in mind and has stainless steel races and shields with a full compliment of ceramic balls. Because Ceramic is impervious to heat there are no issues with the balls expanding as temperatures rise giving this bearing a life expectancy of 5 times that of a standard bearing. For the intermediate driver looking for a more affordable solution with longevity, there is the Silver Standard clutch bearings that come with Stainless Steel races, shields and a full compliment of steel balls. The balls will still expand under extreme heats but the bearing will stand up far longer than average because there is no retainer to break apart. The Bronze Standard line of clutch bell bearings consists of the company’s tried and true Green Seal series that has proven to be far superior to stock bearings and can handle plenty of clutch bell abuse and are perfect for clutch environments where excessive heat is not an issue.

The Boca Bearing Company have announced the launch of the new MX Engine bearings for radio controlled engines. As radio controlled engines have evolved they have become more powerful, use more nitro fuel and come under greater thrust loads, than in the past. The nitro content can dry the thin, stock bearing retainer very quickly which makes the whole bearing susceptible to premature failure when subjected to high radial and thrust loads. Boca Bearing is introducing the MX Bearing line to solve these specific issues. MX bearings have a unique, new internal design to increase load capabilities, which allows the bearings to work under harsher operations where shafts come under excessive side and radial load. These bearings are available in both a standard high-speed version with either chrome steel balls or races or as a ceramic hybrid, with ceramic balls and chrome races. Chrome steel is used because it is harder than stainless steel but the races are also cryogenically processed to attain an even harder surface. A stronger, thicker retainer material has been used to allow the MX Bearings to hold up under high nitro content fuel and Grade 10 balls are used to give a closer tolerance to enhance performance.
