Anybody know a place in the US (that takes phone or Internet orders) that has front bulkheads in stock? Even Corally USA is out, which puts me in a, ahem, bind. :-D

Think I saw that part at Hobbytown in San Jose, CA on Sunday.

Specialized R/C is making some bushings that dont blow up on you instead of those fragil bearings. They are something to consider if you are killing the bearings.

Yes, they are 3 x 6 x 2mm, for sure.

HPI makes an aluminum washer/bushing in that size that is relatively inexpensive. There are a few hobby places online that sell these bearings for less than a buck a piece. The cost for the Specialized Oil Lite bushings is $23.95 for aluminum knuckles that already cost $50, which is what prompted me to research replacements for the breakage-prone bearings.

A few pages back, I posted my research findings of my search. These bushings are impossible to find in this size, and are probably custom-made for Specialized RC, which is probably the reason for the insane cost for 4 bushings. An aluminum shim might be an option, as you really don't need bearing-lined races for a moving part like this. Oil Lites are nice, but not for $24. That's serious gouging for a part that is already a replacement/upgrade for an original part that has a bit of an inherent design flaw (in my opinion).

rcmart.com carries these bearings cheap, as do other companies. You'll just have to do a bit of searching for replacement. See the rcmart.com listings here.


Fortunately, I have not smashed one of these bearings yet, and I don't know what my solution will be when I do, but a 90 new bearing is a good start.

yeah, I often feel RDX parts are fair in price, not outrageous. But these bushings are just silly expensive. I mean (knock on wood), I have not busted one for 10 months now...., I'll have to step up to get some bushings... "Step up to get some bushings" is pretty oxy-moron.

Reason I asked about the size is that i can find 3 x 6 x 2.5 bearing locally, just not 2mm....

Woody, I know you are watching.... get online and find us some cheap 3x6x2 bearings!!!

Yeah, I know, those were the ones I found mostly, too. It's an oddball size, and lends more to the discussion about the functionality and uselfullness of the aluminum knuckles. It's a frustrating problem.

I still think all of these problems with the knuckles would be moot if the kingpin studs had longer pins to grab more surface area in the hole of the plastic knuckle.

These 3 X 6 X 2 are all over the place at bearing companies.
The deal is the 3 X 6 X 2 and 3 X 6 X 2.5 are the same bearing it appears one is shielded and the other is not. So look for open 3 X 6 X 2

here are a couple of them... but again they want you to contact them and get a quote and I'm sure they would want you to buy in bulk.


http://www.bearingworks.com/bearinglist.htm
http://www.dynaroll.com/catalog/pag054.htm

Still looking... If I could find a local company we might be able to stop buy and "Convince" them to sells us a few, or find someone to broker them to us.
