Default Re: Anyone Have any Experience with eBay Friction Kits?

My first F/D was the ebay job. 40 mm drive roller had great speed, for about 5 miles when the outside bearing disintegrated! The bearings were misalighned during manufacturing and the shaft was forced in bending the shaft. The motor channel deformed when clamped down because there was no spacer to prevent deforming. The engine runs great but the tank kept coming loose due to vibration even w/ locktite. I like the USA made BMP. Nearly a thousand miles on one w/ a Titan 50 from Dax.
