hey thanks for the info, are you running the Ceramics on your 8ight or the 24dollars set??

I have been dealing with Jerome, he has been great. Avids are nice bearings, but Jerome is very hands on and easy to deal with. He supports allot of racers and races.

When it comes to all this, I try and support those who support the hobby. It is like Walmart or Simple Green, sure the are cheap, but I do not see them sponsoring drivers or races.......So I shop at the Hobby Stores and buy "RC" related products.

I am not dogging on anyone, but our hobby needs $$$$ badly, so lets try and help the ones that help us. Ready Rollers is a great company!!

my 2 cents.


+1 on the support subejct and thanks for your 2 cents

cheers

I race with David all the time he is a great guy and does alot for the hobby also. I have never ran Avid bearings but I have heard they r really good. I switched to ready rollers after I tried some clutch bell bearings and they lasted for ever!!!! The bearings are very very good. I have people all the time making comments about how smooth my drive train is. Had a few people tell me that today.

I would like to thank every one for the kind words and support.

Thank you.

KWT-NITRO try out losi bearing kit. If you are racing on a high bite track with low dust and dirt ceramic is they way to go. For the rough, dusty alot of dirt go with the stock kit.

I have sent out my stock losi clutch bell bearing to be tested and I am working on making them better each time.

All and all choose what ever works best for you and have fun with.

Hi, do you recommend running regular bearings or ceramic bearings for clutch bells? Thanks!

Standard bearings? and what do you do to prep the bearings for install? Do you blow out the grease? re-oil?

do you run the ceramics or the standard set??

WooW guys, thanks for the input and answers.

Ready Rollers (Jerome), thanks for your reply and advice, i will surely order a set or 2 for my 8ight. since our season ended few weeks ago, i wont need them until october.

another question, how do you compare your 8ight 2.0 clutch bearings to the HD losi ones?? i used the HD ones and never had a problem with them, i change them after a gallon and they still feel new after a gallon.

cheers

Ali

Hey thanks man for the kind words couldnt have done it without my beloved NOVAs

do you run the standard or ceramics??

my next big race will be the IFMAR WC in Pattaya, the track over there is hard packed and very smooth and clean, its impossible to see dust around there . i guess ill take few standard sets for practise and a ceramic one for the Real Race.

cheers

Ceramic bearings do not do well in the dust. I have found on off road they really are not the best choice. They get gritty easier and dont seem to last as long even though you paid more $$ for them.
