Default going from bushings to bearings

hey guys, how much of a pain is it to switch to bearings from bushings on a t3? i'm guessing that thats the major difference from a "rc10t3" and a "t3 team" truck??? does only the "team truck" come w/ the cvd's? i was maybe gonna buy a t3 truck w/ bushings and switch over to bearings, but if it doesnt come w/ cvds either, maybe i wont. any advice you can gimme would be greatly appreciated, been outta the hobby for 12 yrs. and wanna upgrade from my t2. thanks!

In my opinion you should get a T4 Team Kit, they don't have all the bells and whistles of the Factory Team, but I like the plastic parts better as they are more forgiving, would also recommend rpm rod ends, bumper, and aluminum hinge pin brace. I would also go T4 for parts availability, I have found this out as I have a T4, B4ft, and B3 guess which one I can't just walk into the hobby shop and find parts for? Just my .02.

Buy a beariing kit, pop the bushings out amd put the bearings in. You will need to disassemble the trans to replace the trans bearings.
