Default Ceramic Bearing- Best manufacturer?

Who makes the best ceramic bearings? I am looking to get a set for my Xray T2.

Thanks

I just got a set for my T2 from APS in Canada, I just put them in the Carpet car yesterday, haven't run them yet though. Boca Bearing is also a good company in Florida, however they're a little more pricey, but I've had them in other cars and they're great bearings.

Just go to ebay and type Xray T2 ceramic bearings. You will find WalaWala. I have ordered from him for my tamiya kits and now my T2 kit. And his bearings are just perfect for a good price.

We carry ceramic bearing kits. The quality is excellent, rated at ABEC 5 Si3N4 G5 Bearings. Price is also pretty good!

Before you make a purchase, it's always good to know the quality. Not all Ceramic Bearings are equal.

Acer or Boca, IMO. I have used both in several cars. The Acer bearing are less expensive, and they have the hot chicks

Boca for the long haul..

Have them in my RDX for 9 months and have them in my Jammin CRT now very smooth and last a very long time...

My last experiance with ACER wasn't pleasant...

No other comments on others....Haven't tried the rest...

www.rc4less.com , sells ceramics, they have lasted the longest in my pan cars even in the diff.

I have had others, not sure the brand but they dont last as long. The diff ones were shot in a weekend or 2, so I went back to steel bearings there.

I've owned Trinity's but they only have two sets, one for the TC3/4 and one for the XXX-S. I had no problem with them and they were fast. Steel cases, races and shields.
