If you have not given Boca Bearing a try, please do so. These are a new bearing they are selling to help fight clutchbell bearing failure. I have a gallon on them in my Losi 8ight 2.0 & 8ight T with no problems. They are a little more then normal bearings but they last alot longer. Here is a pic, they don't have a retainer inside!!

Ive ran quite a few bearings and went through alot as well. I decided to bite the bullet and bought some Avids. They have yet to fail.

Thumbs up SIN lube

Yes SIN Lube is a lightweight synthetic oil which we use in our ball bearings except for the clutch bearings in which we use SIN grease which we do not sell on our website. We only sell the SIN Lube on our website.
I will let our guys know maybe they will add the SIN Grease for sale.
Thanks!

As stated in an earlier post. I do not believe this is a bearing or CB brand issue. There is something else wrong. I am still waiting for a response from the original poster.....

$12 each?..OH HELL NO! Thats $24 every time you replace your bearings!!

Sure they might go for a gallon plus but I dont ever go more then 7 tanks without checking my clutch shoes so I can just pop in two $1.00 avids every time I do and feel ok about it.

I agree , that`s outrageous for one bearing . I get good life out of Avids and not overpriced like some .
