How do you know which version you have is my biggest question. I have seen people refer to 2013 and 2014 versions, but, when i looked up mine right after i got it, it shows as a 2011 model, so, what do i look for in terms of differences? I know i have metal gears in the rear diff, because i have had to rebuild it once already, but, is that the only deciding factor? The reason i am asking is, someone mentioned replacing bearings in another post i did, but, i have never replaced bearings in it, and i have had it 2 years, and, when i looked for bearings for it, the only kit i found is from Fast Eddy for the 2014 model, and i don't want to get that kit if it wont work on mine. Also, and a really stupid question here, but, besides the hubs, where else would i find bearings in it that might need replacing? TBH, the last car i did that on was a Tamiya and a Futaba, but that was years ago. Now, most of the cars i own i never keep for very long, so i never thought about it, but, i plan on keeping my Fury, Granite, and a couple others i have long term.

Maybe you can find your fury model on Arrma's discontinued page, they may have the exploded drawings which should show where the bearing or bushes are.

https://www.arrma-rc.com/products/-/120/1/ALL/ALL/ALL/ALL

If you then select downloads from the model page, you should be able to get the exploded views.

e.g https://www.arrma-rc.com/pdf/exploded-views/AR102651.pdf

the wheel hub bearings are part no. AR610002 and AR61003 for the larger bearing etc. etc, then you can google the Arrma part no's to get the size of the bearings needed

but there are also bearings in the gear box

I count that there are 14 bearings in total

Mine appears to be the 2011-2013 model, due to the body design and paint scheme, and how the rear diff is set up, as well as that it came with the ATX 300 (the one with the steering wheel that switches from left or right side), and not the TTX 300 radio, and Arrma no longer has the manual for mine, but, i do have the original paper manual that came with it, and, after comparing part numbers, it seems the bearings are the same for all the Fury/Vorteks/Raider models, no matter the year. When i did the count using the manual, i came up with 16 bearings, but, i may have counted a couple twice. The ones i know for sure are 2 in each front hub, 2 in each rear hub, 6 in the rear diff, and 2 in the motor for the BLS/BLX cars.
