Most of the time, RB parts are generally more expensive than Nova's. I find it strange that you find RB bearings cheaper.
Of course the Nova bearings are more expensive - 'cos they're in a Novarossi packet.
. . . . that's what's special.
Seriously, though, in the land of down under I often find the RB parts are cheaper than their Nova equivilents - bearings, con rods, etc. Go figure.
