    RE: Savage xs Bearings problem

    After only two weeks?  What, you running the thing thru salt water and letting it sit unwashed ?  Or you running at a skate park maybe?  There's a guy been lurking around here who'd love to sell you some new ones. But I'm kinda surprised stockers would give out that fast. If you have been getting them wet, you should be taking them out and giving them a good lubing with some Sin Lube or Odonnel's dry wax bearing lube. Any decent shielded bearing should do. Boca or Acer. Standard rubber-shielded ones should do. No need to go ceramic unless yer racing.  You might try cleaning them and lubing them again, they might just be dirty.

    Um..."damaged and axes"???   Huh?

    The bearing sizes should be listed in the owner's manual / parts list.

    If ya run the car in wet conditions, a thorough drying, and a lubing of the bearings is a must.  If there is PHYSICAL DAMAGE to the bearings, then there must be something you're not telling me.

    RE: Savage xs Bearings problem

    are u sure u havent had a big crash,

    IMO, it looks like u have had a off centred front on crash, that was hard enough to pop the dog bone out of the axle bending it and the bearing

    RE: Savage xs Bearings problem

    Maybe someone accidentally stepped on it. ???
    i don't know , and I'm not saying that's what it looks like.
    But that would explain the mystery.

    I cant get the The Twilight Zone theme song outta my head. I watched the reruns in the 80s.

    Could running the car on an axle that came bent from the factory, or was a factory defect... Could that have damaged the dogbone and destroyed the bearings?

    Leonardo1982, are you sure the axle was ok after the car came out of the box?
