And if you are looking for an aftermarket bearing for your RC8, you cannot beat TKO! i know you didnt ask the question, but trust me, they are the bomb! i have been running their steel bearings, and they are way more durable than OEM bearings. JMHO.

You should also look at Ready Rollers for top quality bearings, top prices and most of all top service. I bought bearings through them for my 808 since I couldn't get any locally and they were awesome to deal with. I will now buy all my bearings from them.

AVID for me!!! they are good. and remembder NEVER oil for offroad, just grease. it helps to seal the dirt out and keeps you rolling!!!

You can also get the correct grease for your application after some reaserch and buy it by tubes a not the insignificant amount rc companies sell.

Have fun

measure it...most clutch bearings are 5x10x4....but the silimarities end there...there's Millions of applications for specific bearings...so therefor bearings will come in All sizes and shapes....so no they are generally all 4mm in depth.

for the clutch bearing, I will blow it off when new and use the almost dry. The only problem is that they last aprox 1 hour.
I have also use Spertent bearing oil, but just one drop. the problem is if you put to much oil, it may get to your clutch and start slipping.

I will try to get info for bearing grease, but try SKF, they have great products.

Have fun

for everything except the clutch bearing, what's wrong with a $5.oo tub of high temp automotive lithium wheel bearing grease? Sh!t lasts at least 30,000 miles in a car. It's been working for me in. Pop off the seal and pack it just like a wheel bearing. To my surprise there was not that much more rolling resistance than with oiling and has much better dust protection.
