      Hello Billy boy, As mentioned above, the outer dia. of the SCX spherical bushings is a touch bigger than the Slot-it versions, so they will not be a direct snap in. That said you could glue the Slot-it bushings in place. (For best performance, All bushings should be aligned and glued in place).

      My question is,....why would you want to replace the SCX bushings ???,......they are a good quality "sintered" oilite, (every bit as good as the Slot-its), and, switching them for Slo-its will not give you any performance gains. The SCX bushings will also accept a Slot-it sized axle with no "slop" issues.

        The Slot.it bearings are not sintered, they appear to be solid bronze.

          Rich, Slot-it has produced "sintered" spherical bushings for a couple of years now, some of the newer cars come with them installed, and they are available on their own as replacements, for anyone wishing to swap out their "bronze" bushings...which is a very good idea.

        i like to replace the bushings when i put a new axle in a car. probably not necessary but just a habit. the SCX brand is new to me so there will be a slight learning curve. great info though, thanks
