yeah do like bcarter007 said, run the kit bearings for now, order the Avid ones and when you rebuild the diffs and stuff, just replace the bearings then. I ran the kit bearings for a while on my first D8 and they were fine. Just make sure when you order the Avid ones, get the ones with black rubber seals. Also be a good idea to order several sets of clutch bearings to keep on hand since they wear out fast anyway, no matter what brand.

You should seriously consider the Answer RC-USA bearings. Excellent bearings at a great price...you can't ask for anything more! As the others have said, run the kit bearings until you begin to do your maintenance, then replace as necessary. I've been using the kit ones for quite awhile with no failures.
