I've also had great performance out of the Answer-RC engine bearings. Installed them front and back into my Nova +4 and they have performed flawlessly! And like James, I only promote products that actually work and that I've had great results with...sponsor or not.

with engine bearings to me it doesn't make sense to buy expensive bearings ( i saw a rear RB engine bearing for like 70$). I like to replace mine every 2 or 3 gallons anyway. Avid, answer, tko are all good. But there is a limit to how cheap you can go. I once bought a duratrax front engine bearing for like 6 bucks. Let's just say it's not that good

One thing is for sure, i will never buy a stock o.s. bearing or stock bearing period. They are ridiculously expensive and you are only paying for the name. I also find the rear o.s. bearing (metal) does not last as long as my tko's, But they are twice the price.
