Default Bearing mod

Could someone tell me how to do the bearing mod. I have looked every where but havent found a good explanation on how to do it. Thanks for the information.

I highly recommend the VP plates over trying to do it yourself, and if at all possible for you, get the cases too. Problem solved.

I did a 9mm mod to mine. I started with a 11/32 drill bit because I couldnt find a 9mm bit at Home Depot or Lowes. 11/32 works out to be .34375, 9mm is .35433. So to get the final .01058 I use a Dremel.

The mod will hold you over, but for how long? I say get yourself the VP plates. They a straight, properly CNCed, and have 2 10mils and 1 9mil.

How likely will the bearings fail if you dont do the mod or buy the vp plates?
