what's a speed bearing? I know most high performance racing engines have ceramic bearings in them.

TKO competition ceramic bearings, the best.

many are high performance, and most don't come with a ceramic. It adds to much to the cost, and most ceramics from TKO are way less than a stock steel, for the same engine

They are high quality, long lasting bearings at an affordable price. Pretty much why I like them. I use them in all of my engines.

I use "speed" bearings in my helicopter engines and if there the "Boca speed bearings", they are ceramic.
