    Bellcrank bearings

    I was wondering if anyone has put bearings in the stock plastic bellcrank. Or if it can be modified ( drilled ) to make the bearings fit. Mine still works fine I just don't like bushings. Buddy of mine bought the rustler and it came with bushings on the wheels. They only spin like three times and stop. My slash came with bearings and i didn't think the tire was ever gonna stop spinning. Just lookin for a cheap way to tighten up the steering cause for 6$ you can buy 4 5114 bearing compared to 35$ aluminum bellcrank

    Are they the same part # for the plastic bell crank or do you have the part# so I can compare it. I have the 2wd slash no vxl 4+4 or anything

    You need 5x8x2.5 bearings. They are a direct fit, just pop out the bushings and put in the bearings.

    I have these, and love them. Combine them with the $12 4x4 bellcrank, and you will have steering nirvana.

    Is the 4wheel drive stronger or does it turn farther?

    Its more sturdy, comes with bearings (from what I've read), and has a built-in servo saver.

    Does not include bearings (at least not in the 6845 kit), but the ability to remove the awful on-servo saver and run a regular arm is worth it all by itself. Much, much sturdier than the stock 2wd belllcrank. It's also a direct drop in kit.
