    How to tell if your running Ceramic Washers?

    I have a new charger, that I bought off a trusted member here. I was wondering how to tell if I'm running metal or ceramic washers? I assumed a magnet wouldn't stick to ceramic washers but would stick to metal.

    Post a up close picture.
    You can tell by the color usually.

    Here is a picture. It was used as a test unit, back when the 2003 GTX SC was being released. I was told it had 1 hour of run time. I got it for cheap, so I'll have no problem rebuilding it if it needs to be.

    Tried sticking a magnet to it, and it did stick.

    Looks like a 03 with no washers?

    Due to the risk involved I would send it to jerry for the latest and greatest updated rebuild.

    If I do the rebuild, I can swap for a 16 gear later down the road in case I go to a 215 right?

    IE: Sell this ski for a RXT or RXP
