I don't understand why everyone wants bigger bearings on the front of the TC3. I have owned my TC3 Team car for 5 years (since the month they came out) and have never had a problem with the front wheel bearings. Tamiya is going to smaller bearings to make their cars quicker. If you are running a Racer version of the TC3, the bearings are cheaper in those kits and just about any aftermarket bearing will be better.
Brushes? We don't need no stinking brushes!!!

kufman, I think the thought is they will be more durable since the stock TC3 bearings have gotten a bad rap. I'm not sure why though, myself I've had no durability issues with the wheel bearings yet. I think it is more a few cases develope and the anti-AE crowd parrots it anytime they can when denouncing the TC3.

Myself I've had more issues with the driveshaft bearings wearing fast, but I'm still learning which bearings I can run dry and which I can't, and I've discovered those need lube otherwise they seize quickly. My wheel bearings have been fine though and really don't even need much of a cleaning even after four races on carpet (12 runs.)
