Default Bearing suppliers

Other that your LHS, where do people buy replacement bearings from?

I have had great luck with the rubber sheild ceramics from walawala bearings. They may have a site but I have just bought them off of ebay, pretty quick shipping form Hong Kong!!!

Here is a link to the 1/2x3/4 ceramics.

Ya, I've bought from wallawalla bearings off ebay.. It only took 7 days to get them from Hong Kong. They carry relgular ball bearings and ceramic nitride (best price i've seen for these). The ceramic make a BIG difference!

I have purchased from www.bocabearings.com . If you want BOCAs, I'd say call them..their website is hard to navigate. These have been awesome over the years... I have 2 sets of their ceramic bearings, 1 is 4 years old the other is almost 5. They still feel like new! A bit pricey.. a set for my Losi XXX-T MF2 was around $140... the wallawalla set was around $70
