Default Tornado EPX main gear

Well.. After my nice little run thru the slush and snow with my old electric buggy...I decided to quick run down the battery....set it down on the floor and gave it some juice and all I seen was a few little plastic peices fly off the main gear...[X(].... But it was my fault.. I didn't really clean it up good and the rear bearings are 3yrs old and after that run they seized up right good..So I was looking at the Tornado EPX main gear and it looks very similar to mine..just wondering if it might fit..here's some pics ( and the pooched bearing[&:] )...planning on rebuilding this buggy from front to back since it was my first "real" RC, But been running into some parts problem since no one sells these cars and there are basically no parts for them, But im sure its the electric version of the smartech winner sport or speedy tiger, parts for them look identical..just that they are nitro and obviously have some different parts. any help would be great! Thanks!
