    What is the size of the bottom bearing? Velineon 3500. Mine came out and rebuild kit didn't come with one.

    you are talking about the bearings in the motor, right?

    it's the same bearing on both ends, 5x11x5

    the rebuild kit (p/n 3352) is suppose to come with both though

    From my experience, the bearings are both the same size. Contact Traxxas and let them know your problem. They will take care of you!

    By the paper, I have the current motor. So the bearing on the bottom goes on the inside? Then what goes on the outside? If anybody has a pictures...that would help.

    ok, the pinion side, does nothing go on the outside...in the little cut out?

    I've replaced those bearings with the kit. They should be the same size. My buddy actually poped the bearings out of mine since my hand has a tear in it. He replaced the bearings in one of the motors I've had sitting for over a year too. It isn't easy getting out but it can be done...
