Avid or Bocca bearings always get good comments.

This place has pretty much everything (except the weird metric/std mix engine sizes) and ships fast. VXB

TKO is also good for RC stuff.

the original mugen bearings are much much better than other brands mentioned here.

Before i sterted using only mugen bearings, i use TKO and was very satisfied with them. Kyosho has a ver very good bearing oil that makes your bearings last a very long time.

I have to agree, while I dont buy Mugen bearings often, the bearing set that comes with the kits outlast pretty much anything I have purchased otherwise.

TKO, Boca, Avid, all good bearings for sure though.

Protec, I purchased some standard clutch bearings one time and some of them barely fit on the crank and others were almost to large, bad QC IMO.
