Default Gp viper and TT 46 pro

I know this has been posted before but for some reason i cannot find the post i need. I recently wore out a set of bearings in my thunder tiger 46 pro. This has been a great inexpensive combo and i would like to find a set of bearings for it. Could someone please point me in the direction of where i can buy them and which ones you recomend and why. Thanks for the input.

Boca bearing and IIRC, Competition Specialties. Your local bearing dealer [we have 2 in a small town] might do just as well. Look for Swiss made rated for the application.

Thanks Vicman that is exactly what i was looking for! Could you recomend a good prop for this combo? I have been running a apc 9x8 but think i may be able to get a little more out of this setup.

This is a very good place for bearings and install tips info:

If you need a bit more speed try a Jett-stream or Ultra thrust(Performance Specialties) muffler.
I think the 9X8 APC is will still be the ticket.

All of my tests show the 9X8 coming out on top.
A Jett muffler will help more than anything else.
I had a 9X6N on mine one time and it did pretty good with that too but for the most part and all out fast sport flying, 9X8 is the way to go.
