haha i took a nasty hit from a losi 2 weeks ago

so nasty it broke an a arm on my kyosho.

the front bearing is seized up tight.

what i would like to know

how are the a main bearings?

i might as well replace all the bearings in my truck (ill buy two kits to keep some spares and re bearing the whole truck)

i would really like some feedback on those bearings.

Marcus, that was some hit! Why not use Answer-RC bearings and use your Team Terribles discount? Just a thought for you. See you on the 9th.

Yikes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For the most part avid has had great reviews. I have been running them all around except for engine. I have not had any problems. TKO looks pretty good.

Default avid bearings

I've not had a problem with them on my 808. I didn't know the tko bearings were cheaper though. HMMMMM.....Anyone else have bearing recomendations? Brand, type? Who makes a trully sealed rubber bearing like the mugen wheel bearings that seem to last forever, a little drag isn't an issue if you can leave them alone for longer....they free up after the qualifiers anyhow....

marcus, i really like avids, you dont like those tho. if i had the money i would put tko all around but thats not needed.

I should do this more but i dont replace my bearings much. if i feel it getting sloppy then yes ill do a complete bearing replacement but avids last a while
