    Ill need real confirmation on the size.
    Tower is notorious for being wrong. They are also missing bearings in that list that are on the exploded view of the manual
    2 units 610014

    Thanks,

    The bearings are 5x10x4

    It was a bit unsettling seeing they were plastic bearings but they had to cut costs somewhere & it's a super cheap part to replace on my end.

    They are bushings, right? HPI did that with the savage's in the steering posts and traxxas did it with the t-maxx. If I remember, right, the savage was fixable with tiny bearings, but I don't think you could fit them in the t-maxx without going a different route for steering, like a pro-line saver kit.

    Man I'm old... lol

    It's actually a single molded piece of plastic in the shape of a bearing - pretty much a big plastic spacer :rolleyes:

    Hey Eddy when are you coming out with a bearing kit for the Senton Mega. I saw there is a kit for the Granite.
