Xray have released a new range of clutch bells for the XB808, manufactured on a precision manual gear machine from Hudy gear steel, a material specially formulated and developed for use in gears. Heat treated for highest strength, minimal wear and extra-long lifespan, the XB808 clutch bell features unique oversized ball-bearings designed and engineered by Xray. Replacing the standard 510 bearings with 1.3mm balls, the oversized 808 clutch bearings are 512 with 2.0mm balls and extra-thick bearing walls. This translates to higher load-carrying capabilities which will increase the life of the bearings and reduce the risk of clutch bearing failure during long final runs. The bearings come with special high-temperature resistant grease to ensure proper lubrication during high-revving engine operations and long runs. Available in sizes of 15T, 16T, 17T and 18T

I have been using the xray 17 tooth bell with big bearings in my rc8 for a month or so, it works really well. I have not done any bearing life studies yet, but I am sure they last longer. The clutch bell is wearing awesome too.
