Lightbulb Nitro TC3

Dear all,

Like to find out is there any way to change the bearing at the second gear. This bearing is located between the clutch shoes at the spear and the first spear gear. The bearing is locked tight. Another question is where do we find such bearing size. Even thomas tan does not have the bearing only and he advice to change the whole thing.

Dear all,

I am sure every NTC3 owner should have problem with replacing bearing. Because the bearing at the wheel is broken easily. Anyone has a solution to oversome this.

Easy. More maintenance needed as these bearings are small and spoil easy. You need to keep them clean and lubed to get them to last longer. Keep more spares for these bearings. Cheaper would be to go to a bearing shop and get these bearings yourself.

i only broke 1 bearing coz I hit the wall, try driving properly and you will never break a bearing but it will still wear out and break if you dont oil it often.

Ummm, I think he was referring to the bearings failing prematurely due to dust entering the bearings...

cant be, the bearings are rubber sealed unless he bought the RTR version. I never had any dirt in the bearings. The bearings at the wheel breaks because of frequent hammering (wall and hard objects) and inadequate oiling. Anyway I drive carefully after smashing 1 wheel bearing and oil them regularly. I also do change the bearing once they get gritty. NOTHIN LAST FOREVER especially at those high speed and hard knocks.
