Default Where to find wheel bearings?

Well, the rear wheel bearings on my Mantis are about shot. I looked on tower hobbies' site, and only found a duratrax ball bearing set (entire car set), which is $23. Is there anywhere I could find only the wheel bearings? I would prefer ball bearings or at least brass bushings. The stock ones are crappy nylon bushings.

Should be a common Tamiya Bearing size. But expect to pay up to $5 each if bought seperately. The $23 for a whole set is really a decent deal (about $1 ea).

Try either Boca bearings or Acer bearings. Both sell online.
