Default G4 CLUTCH BEARING QUESTION

I have the team magic G4.......Not the G4S......Just the G4....Can someone tell what size clutch bearing it takes....The clutch is the 3 shoe type....I have never taking the clutch apart to look but, want to upgrade the engine to OS .18tz and would like to have some extra bearing just in case.........TM G4 has been a very good solid race car for the first 6 month I have had it..... It has won me a lot of races at the short track where I race. I know it's a older model but still very tough and fun to drive.

Yes, the G4 racing model has a Centax like clutch and no, these clutchtypes are not user friendly....

Thumbs up Team Magic Clutch Bearing

The G4 uses a 5x10x4mm clutch bearing. We have a very popular replacement ceramic 5x10x4mm clutch bearing for racing use which will last much much longer than the stock and is much more resistant to heat and high speeds.
