    Check this PDF in Section 7. They don't talk about 13.5 but I guess it uses the same bearings

    http://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/shared/vector_x12.pdf

    #50620 X12 MR104ZZ ABEC5 Ball Bearings (2pcs)
    or
    #50621 X12 MR104ZZ Ceramic Ball Bearings (2pcs), for lowest friction

    the X-12's use a 4x10x4 bearing size (i believe the stock spec uses the same size??)

    How fast do the X12 go though bearings? Is there an advantage to using ceramic bearings?

    Don't know, the one I had was used. The rear bearing was lose after a month of racing on a clay track. After I replaced the bearings the carpet track that I was racing at (only race there if its raining) had a eight minute main instead of a six minute main, fried the motor! :mad:

    Used a Integy 2.0 hex and a side cut pliers as a hammer. Tap one side, tap the other side, tap the first side again, then tap the second side again and it was out.

    Used a Dynamite 1/16 hex to put the bearing in. The end of the handle fit the bearing, without touching the motor housing.

    I always thought that a Dynamite tool will catch in fire if it ever touches a Team Associated product... :)
