Default Bandit VXL front axles????

So i snapped a left steering block the other day on my bandit vxl. i also have lost a bearing cause the wheel went flying. i went a bought a new 5x11x4 bearing today which is the same size as all the front bearings. as i was taking apart the blocks and replacing the bearing, i noticed the axle wasn't going back in. *** i thought. as i compared the front axles, i noticed why, but i didnt understand why? the axles are different?!?? any ideas guys??

i dont think they would come off. the axle is supposed to press into the bearing, but the one with the "spacer" is preventing that. why would they space one and not the other? it worked like it should before it broke so i dont see what the problem is now.

thats the inner part of the old bearing... just remove it and install the new one.

he's right. remove it and put the new ones on (will sometimes take some force).
