    Question Is there a full bearing replacement set?

    I burned out two of the bearings in the right rear wheel assembly so I figure the rest need to be changed and upgraded. Is there a full replacement set, preferably an upgrade so I can swap out all the bearings at once? I'd like metal sealed, not ceramic, something light on the wallet lol.

    Yes. I got mine from avidrc.com. You can get a kit with various types of bearings, including all metal for around $21.

    Metal shielded will contaminate quite fast and fail quicker than the stock bearings... just a heads up.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    Thanks guys. Considering the fallbacks of the metal one i'll probably get the hybrid rubber/metal ones avid offers.

    Boca Bearings also has a full kit replacement. I just replaced mine, so far so good.

    I've tried Boca & Avid and I can't tell any difference. Here is a link to Avid's full set: http://avidrc.com/flexkit/?kit=222&k...%28%236804R%29
