Default Suggestions for bearings, CB/spur combos...

Before I get my engine back or another one, I need to order some parts so I can run the truck when the engine gets here.
I need some CB bearings. Does anyone have any recommendations? Last time I got the HPI bearings and they only lasted for about a gallon. I heard Bocca Bearings are good. What size? Provide a link please if you find some to recommend.

I would also like to replace that brass bushing that goes on the end of the crankshaft. I think the Savage X SS comes with a purple steel one, does anyone know the part number or can provide a link to it?

And lastly, I would like to have some different CB/spur combinations to gear it differently. I currently am runnning 16/49. What are some other gearing combinations that I could order?

cb bearings 5x10x4mm. your choice on brand all mine are using hpi's

the purple bushing i think you mean this one off the hellfire.

or use the new one off the 4.6 rtr 86171

as for the gearing with a f4.1 16/49 is as high as i would go.
if you want to go higher on the cb 17 and up you'll have to drop to a 47t spur.
the engine mount will no move enough for 17/49.
