Default Castle Creations motor bearings

Anyone know the size of the bearings inside Castle's 1/10 scale motors? Blew one of the bearings out and wanted to see if I could buy a couple and fix it myself before I send it in for repair.

Dunno but they are offering motor rebuild kits for $20. But I heard they're not out until May and this is only for the motors with the newer style cans.

How did you blow the bearing?

Ive been on the same 4600kv motor in my slash and now my blitz for like 15 months now. Never even lubed the bearings once. Still spins like a champ.

I not really sure. It might be from the abrasive sand over at Fiesta Island. I was driving it and then suddenly my Slash started acting really twitchy, thats when I noticed I had a bunch of slop on the motor shaft.
