Default Bushings or ball bearings on stock Lightning

So does the Lightning come stock with bushings or ball bearings??!?! I ask as I noticed on its parts page there is a listing for both items.

I`d say bushings (may even be brushless)I doubt Darin would cheep out and use bearings. I don`t own one but thats a sharp looking car. I`m into the nitro trucks I know nothing about electric cars. Just wait for Darin,nick or mike to reply. I`ve been thinking about an electric car I heard they are fast.

All Redcat nitro vehicles except the Shockwave have bearings.

Standard electrics have bushings.

Brushless electrics have bearings.

Hope that clears everything up.
