David Joor is a racer and pretty slick businessman too. Avid bearings is right up the road from me in Houston, and you can't go wrong with them. Cheap shipping, rubber sealed or revolution, ceramic, and so on.....for a buck....

In my experience tko's $1 bearings last twice as long as avid. Acids are good but the tko bearings are better.

Answer-RC bearings are super durable and priced right as well! Their clutch bearings really rock, as do their engine replacement bearings. I use them everywhere on my D8T and have never has a bearing failure! Give them a try, you won't be disappointed.
