Default Best place to buy bearings?

I used to buy them from walawala on ebay, but he seems to have vanished.. Anyone know of a good place to get decent quality bearings at a good price? I don't need anything fancy, just rubber shielded ABEC3's. It's for my nitro blizzard so they will be run in snow.

I sell answer-rc bearings and have had great success with them. I have even have a few chassis sponsored drivers running these bearings over their standard bearings!

avids are good and so are the other bearings but TKO bearings are the best and they outlast avids

+1 on the answer bearings from twisted-rc. They are awesome. I use them for my clutch bell bearings and last 3 times longer than any others I have tried. When the time comes I will be using them in my whole drivetrain.
