Default my 2cents

i've had cheep ceramic's from over sea's-2 set's in 2 years,in my pro-4,both with metal shilds,if you break parts like i do, you tend to bend the metal shilds replacing steering blocks. hard hits running a spool,also is really rough on ceramic's,but i bought a set of acers for my hara cyclone,and i love the plastic shilds,because there a little forgiving on those of us who break a little more often than others. on my previous sets it seens like it only took a couple of months racing one night a week,before the bearings got really sloppy loose,had to change driving syle it got soo loose esp. up front,but i've had my acers for over 3 months racing even more frequently,with no slop and as sooth as silk,i'm sold!, don't know much about bocca but 300 bones i can buy 3 sets for my cyclone,thats a lotta money for bearings!

Whats up Chris, Long time. Your right on the "parts testing".. I have noticed the same with the Yokomo ceramic's, Hard hits tends to damage the the metal race..I really try not to hit "stuff" but it does happen..

Default x-cat you the man!

yep me & jr. sure test um,esp. on carpet,damm boards,they tend to jump right in front of me!hardly ever break parking lot racing though unless praticing along with the sportsman nitro guys uuug! ,hell, i did't break at all at the reedy race,acers ran awsome,just didn't have the gearing&skill to get past the j main,but i had more fun getting tips from the pro's& watching them race more than anything! best race i have ever been to,right up there with the cold turkey races,damm mike i miss the track!
