Modding the Cup Racer for a Front One Way, part 1

I made a bit more progress on the Cup Racer front one way tonight. I couldn't find the right size bearing, even from Boca Bearing. But with a little creative thinking and a bench vice I came up with a bearing inside a bearing.

Start by hand pressing the inner bearing - the tolerances are great, you can get a very smooth seat before pressing it with a clamp.

The Eagle Racing front one way includes two plastic shims, use one for a nearly perfect fit in the bulk head. 

I *think* this is going to line up perfectly - the measurements with my cheapo caliper makes it look good enough for metal gears.

Next step is to drill out the bevel gear center hole to fit the one way.
