    I have replaced several servos and replaced the batteries. I do use graphite in the releases when I re-charge.

    I launched around 1500 bumpers this summer and over 10k since I bought them. I don't see a need to replace them yet.

    That's fine. I just mean that no matter where you buy the O'Ring the size, whether it is a #10 or a #11 they will be the same. A # 11 here is the exact same as a #11 any where else in your city.

    Silicon spray works well and we spray the shafts before every use.

    Harbor freight. No since paying extra at lowes or home depot when you are gonna replace them anyways. save a dollar or to and go to harbor freight.
