You glued-in the bearing? Real men use fasteners.

Yeah I know, I had very few options. It was either find a paper thin washer and try to tack weld it on without ruining the bearing or glue it.


The U bold hardware is 1/10 scale from the Gmade Sawback, a lot less than RC4WD and more likely to be in stock. (its a big trailer sized to fit a Wraith/Bomber)

im surprised no one just pushed bearings in to the wheels them selfs i used a 13mm bearing pressed in to the hex of the wheel and a 11mm bearing on pressed in to the wheel on the outer side of the wheel the bearings are held in place by the wheel nut no need for fancy axles or custom shafts just 5mm od all thread and some bearings pressed in to the wheels

Those ubiquitous 5x11x4 bearings are a perfect fit for Traxxas plastic glue on rims (outer side). I have a pretty good bearings collection, but to fit the inside hex I would have to order 5x13x4 or drill it out to 14OD. 13 is an oddball size for SCX10ii owners (maybe if I had a Capra). Other rims in my collection I can tell this method isn't going to work at all. But a good tip none the less.

im using traxxasss tires and wheels but i5 works on alot of different plastic wheels

works great with spun hexs but with just a bit of wiggle they can be pressed in to a good hex

the 5x13x4 is the size i run for the inner pinnion beering in my ar60 axles so i buy them in bulk lol
