I have revolutions there one part metal sheiled, one part rubber coated metal sheiled. Metal to make them more free. And rubber to repel dirt and grim from coming in.

The metal sheiled bearing will be way faster due to the sheilds opening up more and being more free. But that causes dirt and dabree to inter then. Making them more prone to cleaning and lubing. If not that could cause wear.

Ceramic bearings are a waste of money. just by looking at the price makes me not wanna know about them lol


My say is to get the ones that fit your shall out price. Get what you could afford.

*but doesn't matter what bearings your going to get or you own now.... keep then clean*

There's nothing wrong with NiMh's & brushed motors but people have moved away from those in favour of Lipo & brushless

I'd like to see you get 165grams of lead weight as low as this can whilst perfectly fitting into the original battery slots

While we are on the subject. I have 5-6 stacked up in front and behind the battery, will these stay "stuck" race after race and bump after bump? It almost seems like a gnarley turn will cause these to fly off...

416 front belt will also fit in a TC5

I can't seem to find anywhere that has bomber belts in stock.
Do the 416 belts work as good (easier to find stock), like what is mentioned above???

I ordered the large team bomber belt from here. They are out of the rear one. I think this is going to be a hard to find item.
