No they are the outside wheel bearings

02138 are the inside bearings and 02139 are the outside bearings

In case anyone wanted to know, the Volcano EPX is fully Brushless ready. I swear, all the internal tranny gears are steel. The dogbones are aluminum or steel and the drive axal is aluminum.

You should locktite that and the screw that goes in it. Make sure teh screw is pretty tight also. Also put a very small peice of fuel tube on the drive cup then install teh shaft. Thjis will take up any play because these have way too much play in them.

of course it can be removed. Take off the rear(4 screws from underneath.) then take off the 2 screws on the top purple mount right above the drive cup. Then you can get the spur off.

HPI rims and Axial Rock Wizards rubber. Had to get them as I broke one of the wheels after break in. Hit a small snow bank and the rim sheared off the hub.
