My spec kit must have come with some prototype bearings or something because they lasted a solid 3 months of racing before I replaced them.

Right now my car has some Yeah Racing bearings in it and they seem good so far. Only one night of racing on them but they are smooth. And the price was to good to pass up at 15 shipped.

the bearings will last a while but its their performance that sucks as they wear. And then they just eventually lead to failure.

I'll be there Wed as I went through the Cougar and Rango to get ready for the Rumble.

Maybe the big bores will be out before that

I do not agree with this. I went through and replaced all the bearings in the car after I noticed the rear hubs going out. The rest of the cars bearings were still in great condition. Coming from eighth scale racing where replacing bearings is a weekly thing, I was pleased how long these lasted.

This is why I used xray stuff. I was running 8th scale xray cars and they just held up great in the grimiest conditions. I never personally had a failure, but they just didn't feel smooth after a while. The stock bearings are known to be bad and based on user feedback, I just decided to change em just in case it happens while in motion.

As far as feel goes when spinning, the bearings feel smooth. Not sure how long that will last due to my main issue at the moment, the slop. Try grabbing the front tire and wiggling it side to side. Look and see how much slop there is in the bearing race. That seems to me like low tolerance or something cause those bearings can't last with that much place.

+1 i was happy w/ my kit bearings, im still running a lot of them. if you take all the play out of everything the dirt will start to cause drag and binding too. (the ak47 is the most reliable assault rifle the world has ever known because the slop in the action) a little play isnt necessarily a bad thing, just sayin. i do have a complete spare set of avid bearings $1 a piece for almost any size, cant beat it.

I like things to be smooth and free. But when you grab the front wheel and can rock it back and forth ad much as the 410s, not saying it won't work but seems like to much to me. It looks like it wobbles in your hand but on the track it does feel very much in control. Maybe they wanted as little drag as possible to help the electronics with heat and what not.
