Does anyone know the weight limit of the Full Floaters?
I've run them for years on everything from fast speedsters to full bodied cars. I make my own
Now I will make some qualifying comments;
1. As similar to the recent thread on ball bearing 4th mains, I always buy "name brand" ball bearings
2. Proper installation practice needs to be followed. In this application the outside should be a "light " press fit (.002-.003 tight). The inside should be a close slip fit (.001 loose)
I looked up what I think is the main bearing in the floating hubs (If they are Stoltz made... 8-10 years ago and I can't remember now who I got them from) - it's got a static load of 5,220 lbs.
So I am assuming that's 10,440 because it's spread out over two corners of the car.
I'm also assuming that my Fordor weighs 3,000 with me in it. My concern was adding another 1,000 lbs to the vehicle, but it looks like it's not an issue.
Please also consider that only about 1/2-2/3 of the weight will be on the rear axle. With FAG bearings it should be fine
