The bearings they refure to on dinball is the ones in the tamiya cars. Many of the low end tamiya cars come with plastic bushings instead of bearings, they suggest u replace all the plastic bushings in your car with bearings. This will increase runtime and top speed, and reduce load on the motor.

PS there are much better stock motors out on the market then that motor your looking at. Consider the new CO27 from trinity
