hey warpig - how do you like them, do they roll fairly smoothly? i could do with a set of bearings, might drop him an email and ask about posting overseas.

hoping they made well and last a while.

their tolerances are impressive for being a dollar a piece.. better than stock by far.. I think he has some ceramic nitride bearings that may suite your purpose for the roll.... I'm happy with the inexpensive ones... I use the 5x10 rubber shields for my clutch.. they work very well.. I'm very happy to be able to purchase good quality at such a good price

David Joor's an r/c racer too so he understands our plight....and he doesn't screw a fellow r/c racer / hobbyist /enthusiast.

i took your guys' word and ordered a bunch. at $1.00 a piece, they go a long way. i haven't installed 'em yet, since my bearings are still fine, but i'm sure they'll be just as good as you guys say they are. anyway, i wanted to say i ordered 'em last tuesday, and got 'em in california by friday. david even replied to me the same day. good service, good price, i'll definately be getting all my bearings from him. i've spent $$$ on ceramics, but the way bearings seem to go bad (sometimes unexpectedly), avid bearings seem to be the best way to go.

Yeah, David is a very good guy. I have done a lot of business with him on batteries. Top notch products and customer service.

Default if you can believe this...

no bullsh/t, i put some new bearings in my mbx5. replaced the blown out ones, and happen to have a couple extra acer ceramics laying around and used those as well.

well, after a few runs, the acer ceramics blew out. now, i have used acers ceramics and decent experience w/ 'em. not trying to slam ceramics, i just don't think the performance gains are worth the higher price (atleast for 1/8 scale buggy, i still run ceramics in my 1/10 ep tc's) because of the obvious harsher outdoor conditions.

anyway, i thought it was pecular that my DAVID JOOR AVID A BUCK A PIECE BEARINGS worked w/o any problems <insert sarcarm here>. besides, if they did blow, i'm only out a buck.
