US HG Tech support of Formule ETS team for their first electronic racing car
US HG Tech Corp/November 2021
Custom-made thin section bearing with ceramic ball
The custom made thin section bearings with ceramic balls and stainless steel (or hybrid thin section bearing) are a relatively new technique developed at US HG Tech in recent years. The newly developed bearings will be equipped with the first electronic racing car Formule ETS build. This is an intelligent design to use ceramic balls instead of metal balls. By doing so, the bearing will be much lighter.
Introduction the team Formule ETS

For the first time in over 30 years, Formule ETS will design and manufacture its first iteration of an electric race car for the 2022 season. Historically, they stood out from their competitors by creating the lightest car during many competitions, taking great care of the car's fit and finish, and finishing on the podium on numerous occasions in many events at multiple matches.
