Where are you guys getting the bearings from? I can't find them small enough and lastly what about screws? No way my stock screws are going into the bearing hole. The linkage screw is to large.

I searched around Emay. The hobby shop has no clue what Im looking for or needing. Todd and Robert don't carry them as its not a company modification. I guess were on our own on this one?

Full Pull did you get your screws for the linkage upgrade? I sent you images of the screws needed. I also placed those a few washers aside for you to.

Glad to hear Full Pull and thanks for the bearing info. Those bearings are tiny aren't they? LOL. Like I said, this something we won't carry or prob do from this point on. This was something I did personally to my kart so keep that in mind folks.......

Wow that made the bearings easy to find Full Pull. Thanks for the digits it help the hobby shop. He even had them instock. Set me back a whopping $6.00 and change. I do have another question. What screws is everyone using for the bearing upgrade. My stock screws are to big and Todd doesn't have anything smaller he said.
