Default Offroad Buggy Bearings. Plastic vs Metal vs Rubber Shields

Hi all,

Can someone please give me some pros and cons for the different types of bearings available.

Mainly concerned with wheel bearings and diff outdrive bearings. Also clutch bearings too i guess...

Metal Shielded
Rubber Shielded
Plastic Shielded

Thankyou!

Metal Shielded Best performance least protection
Rubber Shielded Best protection less performance
Plastic Shielded in the middle

Thankyou!
I normally run metal shielded clutch bearings, i spray them through with cleaner then re-lube with a drop or 2 of acer sin lube this works well for me, some people run a mixed bearing for cluthes with 1 metal and 1 plastic/rubber seal which faces the outside of the clutch
