Default Tamiya Tiger 1 info needed

I am going to start my build soon. I am looking for a source of wheel bearings to replace the stock ones. I can't find a source, any ideas.

Take a look at Fast Eddy Bearings. He will want you to measure the bushings in the Tiger kit and then he will see what bearings will fit. Do this if all else fails in your attempt to find bearings, it's a long process. He is an RC car/truck bearing guy. I did it with one of my tanks and it took weeks. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

If you know the size (should be in manual), go to" Fast Eddie's Bearings", search that number, order your quantity, do it yourself that way, and it should be fast service! Making them look it up may be why it took so long. (heritage19) I've always had fast service with them. (days)

I tried to look up the Tiger brg. size but no luck.

If you can't find bearings, can also just blow some PTFE powder on the stock bushings. You'll be good for years I want to think the Tiger 1's are 4or 5X8.. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Labelle-Lub...Cclp%3A2334524

Hi Guido,

Best regards,
