sleeves of 1$bearings for practice(used more on front). iv been running some hpi metal sheild on rear bearing(about $5 for 2 and not too bad) best are losi hd all the way. mesh and good shim with spacer behind collet works best. when im down to 2 sets of losi hd bearings i order more.

seems like somthing in drivetrain(worn pins or?)will where on that front clutch bearing. the rear with losi hd will last a good gallon+

Avid bearings are good for the money, overdriverc.com sells those.
