I have ceramics up front but not in the rear. What do I need to do to get the bearings to fit in the rear? Anything special?

1/8 x 5/16 flanged? Isn't that the same size as the bearings up front?

hmm, that's cool. How much did they cost? Also, what difference did you notice with the bearings?

Took about five phone calls but I finally found some in the proper size. They are made by Dynamite.

Too bad that I can't pick them up today. I will let you know if I notice any difference.

*ahem*

are these them?
http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXD078&P=M

also, I'm making a new steering linkage for myself because whoever built my BRP horribly bent the music wire and the toe is different for each front wheel...
http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXD609&P=0
any rough idea how long of ti-rods I'm going to need?

I'm geussing at a 4-40x46 for the long link, but what about the shorter link to the servo?

Hey Blind,

Those ends used to be avaialbe in 2-56 size too. If they're still around they may be adequate and lighter. Just a thought.

Those are the correct bearings. As far as the tie rod setup, you may just want to try the old Motek setup.
