Noobie, Fair statement!

I have been running Avid bearings since last year. If you buy 10 or more bearings of ANY size they are all $1.00 a piece. Total rebuild of an 1/8 buggy is $24.00. Avid sells mostly to hard core racers so the quality is defiantly there or they would go else where. I ran Acer bearings when I was running elect. They too sell a good product but IMO are over priced for off-road racing. I donít think you could put more stress on a bearing than running 1/8 off-road. Having said that the bearings I get form Avid do very well. I average ĺ to 1 gallon of fuel on my clutch bearings and 2 to 3 on my wheel bearings and I have not replaced my diff bearings since this time last year and I race at least 2 times a week. So at a buck a piece you canít go wrong! More expensive is not always better. Just my .02
