You can't go wrong with Avid Racing Bearings. They are what most of the pro's use.

34 cent a bearing sounds good. i was looking into avids, but right now all i have are bushings, and it was gonna cost nearly $40 just top put them on my truck. i wanted something a little cheaper. if the walawalas are good and cheaper, i might go with them

they are from hong kong though..... so shipping to the us might be expensive. and it actually cost more to get the good ceramic bearings there then it does to get them from avid. its like $50 or something for a set of 15 bearings. i can get 40 from avid for $40

Guys there is a reason that most pro's and hardcore racers use Avid & Tko. Like posted above you get what you pay for and both those companies have great customer service.

IMO and just my .02 ceramics don't belong in off-road. Especially 1/8th scale.
