Hey guys,

I read about someone replacing the brushes in their stock engines with bearings to reduce friction. What size bearings fit in the bell housings and do you only replace the front brush or bothe front and rear? Only because I noticed the rear brush was much smaller then the front.

Thanx guys, I'm keen to hear some feed back.

The brushes or the bushings?

I've just swapped an Xspeed into a Chili can and the motor was way faster than your average Xspeed. I'm sure you would get the same effect with a stock armature as well.

There's a few shops that sell the 130 cans and endbells with the bearings already installed. If you're dead-set on dropping a stock armature into a ball bearing can this may be the way to go.

Ok cool. I'll look into 130 cans with bearings. Thank you

Does anyone know of any online shops that sell bearings for the cans or even the and with bearings?

Cool! Do these upgrades need FET upgrades aswell?

Not if you plan on putting a stock armature or Xspeed type of armature into the M1 bearing can...it'll run smoother with less friction but won't be that much faster or require fet upgrades.

Also bearing will drastically reduce your breaking.
