Default standard clutch bell sizes for 1:8 scale .28 engines?

what is the standard clutch bell size for a LRP .28 engine in a mugen mbx5. its been 2 years since ive been into the RC things and I forgot a lot of it!

also, I remember I tried to run my 12t clutch and it required smaller bearings.. does anyone know this size too?

bonus points: where is the cheapest place to get them from? preferably in a package of 10. medium quality is good enough for this guy

I am not familiar with the MBX5's gearing but on my 8t 2.0 I run 14tooth bell and 50tooth spur. I race with the LRP's brother, Losi 454 and that gearing works well for me.

OMG I completely screwed this thread up haha.

I meant to ask the standard clutch bell BEARING size!!!

and I bought a 12t clutch bell one time and it had even smaller bearings than what the 14-18T took.. what are both sizes?

Most bells upto 14T have a 5x10 bearing and those larger then 15T utilize a 5x12 bearing unless its a specific company like Losi and Agama who use 5x13.
