Rocket Motor Rod End Bearings Sourced and Delivered
We were excited to receive a set of AM-16 Aurora Bearings direct from the company that produces this great product in Montgomery, Illinois. These rod end bearings will be used on the end of our motor thrust rods and will allow the motors gimbal or pitch angle to be adjusted up and down or side to side. They will also align the nozzle in the centre of our chassis with a 0.5 degree downward tilt, keeping the motor pushing the front of the car down.
