Default Ceramic Bearing???

There a lot of good post about ceramic bearing's. So here is one for you Guys. Do gain any power ? Or does the motor rev any faster? just wondering if i ever had to replace a bearing why you would go with ceramic bearing over a regular bearing?

they are a little more efficent so that would almost have to increase rpm. not enough that putting in a ceramic would make your motor faster. ceramics are tougher and can withstand the rpms and heat a little better. they take the same abuse and last longer basically

Ceramic bearings are smoother and can reach a higher RPM faster. They are also more durable than the stockers. I've never had a failure using TKO Ceramics. Give Peter Martin a call @ 704-562-3535 TKO Competition Development.
