Can anyone recommend good quality bearings for a T4 or B4? I accidently tore off the nylon coating of a couple bearings on my B4 and am looking to replace them. Have heard good things about Ceramic but not sure. Found Metal Sealed bearing sets on eBay for $10 but not sure how good they are.

I wouldn't go with metal sealed bearings they offer the least protection from dirt of all of the types of seals. Teflon sealed are the best compromise between freeness and protection for off-road. You could also get bearings that have a teflon seal on the outside and a metal seal on the inside for bearings that are only exposed to dirt on one side. I know ceramics are the best but not mush else. Do a search.

Ceramic bearings in offroad are useless. Even inside the gearbox. A guy at my track tried it a while back, the wheel bearings where shot to hell in a couple runs, and he maybe got a couple weeks out of the ones in the tranny. I'm still a firm beleiver in the Losi blue rubber seal bearings, and the AE rubber sealed, the teflon ones are twice the price, and dont last that long.

Does anyone know whats a good starting point for rear tires on my T4. Bumpy, hard packed, not blue grooved. I haven't raced off road in 8 years and don't know where to start for tires. I'm thinking Hole Shot T tires.

Where you race in calgary? I was just there in July and saw the car car track and the offroad track. The off road track really had me jonesin for my 1/8 buggy wishing I had it there!!

I used holeshot M3 on my GT at a hardpack dusty track alot and liked them. I liked losi red directionals up front better than blades.

Thanks for the info. I race with carcar for most of the last 4 years but I'm getting back racing off road again. The off road track is great for 1/8th scale. Just alittle to big for electric but everyone runs on the same track.

Yes, it looked pretty big for electric. Well those big doubles by the drivers stand anyhow. Other than that t4 should handle it well. If the track ever gets watered at all losi kingpins may work there too. But I didn't see them water only once when I was there. Seems alot of guys like the losi tires around here. Ifmar pins they all talk about too. But I think they are hard to get where I'm at anyhow. That track would be a blast with gas truck too. Blaa, wish I was back in Banff now that I'm back in flatland mich.

Not a problem at all I feel the same way. The guy who owns it is really nice also. I sent him a question in an e-mail & response was quick. He does hit big races I think so response time may vary.

HeY!!!


IMO i personally beleive that you can run any bearing that you want in off-road just depends if you run on a loose dusty track, you would just have to increase the maitnence of your vehicle..... would i recommend running ceramic bearings... prolly not nor steel..... just my $0.02
