Default Yokomo 5x10x4mm Ceramic Bearings

I'm having a really hard time purchasing these Yokomo ceramic bearings. (definitely in the U.S.)

I can't find them (in stock) anywhere.

Anyone know why they are very hard to find?
(I plan on installing the bearings in a HPI Pro4)

Thank you

5x10x4 is a standard size bearing, can be found anywhere, not even only from RC brands.

Thanks to everyone for the info

I'm going to go with the ProTek 5x10x4mm Ceramic Bearings (they're $1.25 less).
-I've purchased ProTek products in the past (everything worked well). These ceramic bearings should be good...(?)

What you guy's think about the ProTek Ceramic Bearings? Are they any good?

I use them for wheel bearings. 2 races later, nothing is crunchy. Feels new. Good bearings.

Hey Xrayray

What chassis did you install the ceramic bearings in?

I installed them in an Xpress XQ1S for USGT. I did the whole car yesterday except steering.

I checked out the Xpress XQ1S chassis (nice looking chassis). It's not sold at Amain Hobbies. What hobby shop sells that chassis?

RaceVTA or Michael's RC hobbies in Florida both have fast shipping.
