Just got my order from TKO Competition Development in. Have to admit their products are really nice. Their bearings are a true radial load bearing which should assist in reducing friction cause by the bearings on high speed corners. They also have diff rings that they use a Total Flat Technology to bring the surfaces within a 2 micron flatness. Here are the products I got.

I would say put a pre-order in (no cost to you) and see. The rumor is 50+ kits...

"true radial load", is that for the 2 larger bearings since they have larger side walls?

Love my car. Current track record holder in both 2wd mod and 17.5, no changes between the 2 setups besides motor and gearing. Car weighed 1528 last night in 17.5, only thing after market is aluminum shock standoffs and titanium turnbuckles.

The yz2 is head and shoulders above the b5m. In quality, and just flat out being able to drive the car with a solid feel. It only gets better with each time I run it. It is so highly recommended.
