Srb Ball Race?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm looking to 'ball race' my Sand Scorcher but, of all the bearings that I have, none seem to be the right size for the gearbox. Are they a specific size and if so, can anyone tell me where to get them? I'm about to dremel the gear case so that I can fit a 'hotter' can, but dare not do this whilst the brass bearings remain. :D

The SRB (Sand Scorcher etc.) run entirely on 1150 bearings.

11mm outer dia, 5mm thru hole, 4mm long.

A lot of the current Tamiya range still use this bearing, you shouldn't have any trouble finding them at a good hobby store.

If you use it, search eBay for 'Tamiya 1150' - 50p - 75p a bearing isn't unreasonable
