Just because his opinion isn't yours he is an @$$?

If you think adding $$$ bearings will help you laptimes go ahead and buy them.

I could care less about ceramic bearings. I'm sure they help if your a pro driver but most of us in here couldn't even notice the difference that they make. He is one that thinks his opinion is the right way and the only way. And when anyone contests him, he has to personally attack them. Open your eyes. You can see it even in here.

And that comes from someone who only posts in this topic to flame him?

I bought Acer bearings for my T4, not the best use of $100. I was surprised that the set didnt include a couple key bearings and in all reality ceramic bearings shouldnt be used in offroad racing.

We gaan het toch wel gezellig houden? (For the others: this is a private session for the Dutch people ) AMCA is a great track, drove there when I ran 1/10 nitro. I like MAch in Heemstede as well.

I drive in my XRay M18 Ultra Bearings by Boca-Bearing. I found the bearings worth their money, very light rolling chassis! I want to replace the bearing in my Yokomo LCG and I don't know what to do.: replace it with Ultra from boca or ceramics from Valvala

One thing I noticed is Metal bearings get better with age.
Ceramic bearings get worse with age.
I bought a set of Acers thinking to get a great performance gain. Actually I got more of a gain tuning my chassis than plopping in a set of ceramics.
Just something to think about.

Like you're any better.

Anyway I'm suprised that you don't see many ceramics for motors. They have them for nitro engines. I'm sure that's one place that they could be useful.

i forgive you the detroit area doesnt have any good schools and the air quality effects brain cells over there, your comments are proof to that.
Xing Xing - I live in California so I am in the same polluted air as you with the same crappy schools. You forget one minor issue with your test, you're doing it in the air. There is no weight / resistance on the car. That's like saying a 50hp motor will rev in neutral to 5,000 rpm just as fast as a 500HP car, so they will both be equally as fast. Put them in drive and check your 0-60 mph times. By your logic, they would be the same. I have used Speedtech's ceramic bearings (Yokomo) and the car rolls farther off throttle than with the regular bearings. That's good enough for me.

I'm reading the whole thread with much interest but still haven't decided to buy or not ceramic bearings!!

Does the investment worth?

Also, what do you think about ceramic bearings on the motor?? What size are they I'm trying to find them at boca site but can't
