    Motor bearing size?

    I have looked at the exploded view and searched around a bit on the net, but I canīt find the size of the motor bearings.....

    And are they special like abec nitrid special high rpm bearings or something like that? or will it work with "regular" bearings? they look normal to me I have meassured them to 9x4 with a ruler, but I want to be sure.

    Just one input on the motor rebuild... Traxxas, the size of the screws on the can is...horrible...I couldnīt find an allen key that would fit so I drilled the screws away... I have to figure out how to get the can back togheter now...

    i think "i don't know" would have been an equivalent answer.

    I think you can get amainhobbies to ship them to you but it will cost a bit more
