Default Losi 8T 2.0 rear outter hub bearings

I'm tired of replacing the outter rear bearings (8x14x4) on my Losi 8T 2.0. I've tried a couple of different companys and still they go bad way to quick. I really don't want to go out and get the King Headz aluminum rear hubs if I don't have to, but I will if I have to. So my question is does anyone know of a company that makes 8x14x4 rubber sealed bearings that last for more than a couple of club races?

Use the link that Slum lord gave you....its the 8T 2.0 thread. Search for J Dub hub...he modifies the original plastic or aluminun Losi hubs to accept a larger bearing...same concept as Kingz Head but much cheaper!!! Problem solved....

I have the J-Dub modded plastic rear and alum front. No more bearing issues here. J-Dub does excellent work.
