    Post Bandit Upgrades.

    I recently got back into the hobby . I have a New Bandit XL-5 I want to upgrade to sealed bearings. My question is . Will the stock hubs hold the bearings? Or do I have to replace the hubs to ones that hold bearings instead of bushings?

    if you find the right size, you dont need to worry about it
    All I need now is to set a new lap record.

    Hey Gitsum, welcome to the forum. If your xl-5 is newer it may come with the 5x11 bushings, and the 5x11 bearings will drop right in. If not, you'll have to get new bearing carriers for the 5x11 size. STRC aluminum carriers come with new bearings but are more expensive than the plastic ones.
