I replaced the bushing in my T3's slipper with a bearing and it works fine for me. I haven't personally looked at the design of the duratrax slipper, but it is probably very similiar. You may have to be careful on how things push on a bearing. Normal bearings are not made to be used as thrust bearings. In the T3 it is just there to keep the spur gear centered. What part of the bushing are you tearing up? The outter surfaces or the inner part that rides on the to shaft?

the face of the bushing is wearing out badly by the next washer in front of it, the washer in front is fine it has no burrs etc..

Well if something is tearing the face of the bushing out, it'll probably do the same to a bearing. Not to mention on a bearing the force should be on the inner race, not the outside edge of the bearing. I'd try and find out what is causing your problem. Slippers shouldn't slip that much. Normally they are revolving with the rest of the drivetrain. Are you running it to loose? Maybe the brushless setup is to much torque.

Tighten the slipper a bit more, maybe run some grease between teh bushing and washer, and maybe try some rear tires tha have a bit less tractions.

I was meaning if your slipper is slipping that much maybe you should get tires that aren't as hooked up. But if you already got big wheelspin I'd say the motor system is just to powerful for your truck. Have fun!!
