Default school project

Hello,
My son has joined the solar car club at his middle school. they are going to build a car and install a 280 mabuchi motor with a 3V solar panel to power it. they need to build their car on their own. I can just provide advice.
The axles of their vehicles are 1/8" in size. I am trying to locate some cheap 1/8" id ball bearings that they can use on their cars, if they would like. does anybody have any bearings that they wish to donate? Or does anybody know where I can buy a few cheaply? I would guess that unshielded bearings would work best since they will be running down a rubber mat track. However, they could remove the rubber seals if they needed.
Also, it may help them if I could get some sort of mounting flange that they can use to hold the bearing in the car. Otherwise, they will need to make you their own mounting system.

thanks for the help,
