Default hi need stearing help

hi redcat people.. i am a fan of the red cat and i need some help. i want some help with the stearing. i own a blackout xte pro and the stearing is pretty ruff. i found the problem is undersized spacer that needs to be replaced with a bearing. i just want to know where i can find the bearing to fit it. image attached. it's wobbly.

If you look in the manual (the manual is your friend and available online too!) you'll see the part number for that bushing is BS903-122 and its size is 5.1x8x2.5mm. So you need a bearing that's 5.1mm inner diameter X 8mm outer diameter X 2.5mm thick. You're not going to find a bearing with a 5.1mm diameter though so get 5mm. It might be a tight fit but you could always rub the shaft it goes onto with some fine sandpaper to take it down a little.

got the last one. thanks broski. sure glad I came to these forums.
I'm thinking that .1 is the reason it's loose.

I just replaced these on my Earthquake 3.5, with Traxxas 5x8x2.5 bearings. The fit is SO much better, and in turn, the steering is so much smoother.
