Seems most of the post here are talking about clutch bearings. I was more wondering about all the other bearings in your car. I change clutch bearings all the time. And as someone here said, blow the grease out of the one that is next to your shoes and use the factory grease on the front bearing of the bell. Moving on.... to see more about every bearing except clutch bearings. Example diff, bulkhead, and hub bearings.

Yeah i dont want to pay for a brand name, but i dont want to pay for a bearing that has been made in a bootleg factory with dirt floors in china either. It happens.
P.S. Your paying for a name any time you buy repackaged bearings from a Hobby store or bearings categorized as "RC". Go straight to the manufacturer/distributor...Koyo and Micro Miniature. (just make sure you know the specs and ratings). Whatever, im no expert.

what bearing oil you guys use? I use some high temp grease that comes in that huge tube. The viscosity is thick, but it frees up once it heats up.

Aside from the CB bearing, I replace the rear hub bearing more often. Seems like they take the most beating.

SpeedX works fantastic for me.

TKO's specialty is 1:1 racing (Stock Cars, Drag Cars etc...) bearings... No dirt floor manufacturing there...

I use acer racing Sin Lube. You can put a drop right on the rubber seal and it will soak into the bearing

They last longer, dont heat up as much, but need to serviced. If you dont open them and clean them its a waste of the extra money
