No Doubt about the TKO Special CB's. We pull them out every 2 weeks or so to clean and lube and they're buttery smooth waay past a gallon, for us...... Never seen anything like them. 2 alum 2 carbon on a losi clutch...

Thanks Guys. If you ever have a problem with any of our products PLEASE contact me.

The "special clutch bearings" are directional. Blue seals face each other. This is for the thrust forces. They have steel balls and have a higher RPM rating then standard bearings.

question Peter....Is it possible to get a bad bearing in a batch or no ?.....ive normally had really good luck with the 5x10 and 5x13 in the losi clutch but like i said earlier i had a BN 5x10 take a dump with basically the A-main warm up...and it failed big time....balls and races all over the place.

curious more then anything......thx

Was it a special ? Yes all bearings are hand assembled. Things do happen. We always check what we can especially if we see an early failure. Fortunatley we do not have to do it often.

Man I had that same thing happen to te 5x10 tko special bearing it caused 2 flameouts and that equaled 5th place in the a main. Went back to the losi HD and no issues. TKO engine bearings are all I use though.
