Default Bearing size

I am working on a project to put axial c-hubs and knuckles on some trex axles. The inside of the axial knuckles have a bearing seat for a 5x15x4 bearing. Trouble is I cannot find that bearing on avid, or Boca bearings website. I have a 10x15, and 5x10 together that seem to work. Any one know Where i can get those bearings, or do people just run the 2 bearing combo.
Thanks for the help

Tower hobbies has them from Thunder Tiger, I've run them in two crawlers for some time with no problems and there cheaper than axial.

I've been having great luck with the bearings I buy from 'team fast eddie'.

My bad I guess. what I need is a link to a 5x15x4 bearing. It is the inner bearing for the axial ax-10 knuckle

The inner knuckle bearing for a AX10 is 10x15x4mm (part#: AXA1230), the outer bearing is 5x11x4 (AXA1221).
So i'm not sure why you're looking for a 5x15 unless you're wanting to run only the stub axle into the steering knuckle rather than the top of the dog bone cup like the stock AX10 axle has.

But looking at my local bearing place (smallparts.com.au) i only found one close and that's 5x15x5. Here's a link to it: MR1552RSC613 Small Mechanical Parts and Components

well i am working a project to use the trex 60 axle with the axial c&knuckle, but I still have to use the rc4wd axle and stub and the cup is an off size. i think just putting the 5x10 inside the 10x15 will work fine. thanks for the part number.

No worries, that explains it...Found a part number through BOCA for you. Still 5x15x5 though, haven't found any that are 4mm thick yet.
