Just took them both apart and cleaned out the grease. The polymide ones are a little more free. They also don't use a snap ring to hold the seal in, its like a hard plastic that just snaps in which I think is really cool. With or without the seals there is hardly any difference in how free they are so I am going to run them with the seals in after putting in a few drops of oil.

Spongebob,

I would like to get some for my 12th scale.

Im after some of those coloured polymide bearings from accer for my mission, anyone know the bearing width, as it doesnt state on the order form, the mission bearings for the hubs are 5 x 10 x 4.

they have them listed as 5 x 10, but not specifically to order for the mission..

what measurement is the 4?...inner diameter or width?

cheers

usually quoted as d x D x B

d is bore (inner diameter)
D is outer diameter
B is breadth

they need shooting if they dont' list the B but usually its 3mm.

I disagree wiht the majority of people on here, yes if you clean the grease out it makes the bearing roll for longer but it does nacker it out way quicker. a good bearing is silent and pretty smooth. not one that rolls forever.

just my 2 penceworth

I have to agree with schumacher that de-greasing the bearings can shorten their life BUT for ME, the increase in speed and acceleration is worth it, all i usually do is pull all the bearings out after EVERY race weekend and clean them out and LIGHTLY oil them and i'll get USUALLY about a season out of them

Default To Grease or not to Grease

Guys;

I ran my Pro-3 this weekend with my new Acer Teflasonic bearings. I installed them without degreasing. I have to say that if there was any difference between the un-shielded bearings that I ran and the new Teflasonics, I really didn't see it.

I find the only difference you see is how often you DON'T have to clean them

also how long they last,

ceramic bearings should be cleaned as per the manufacturers guidelines.

in most cases this means not greasing but does involve flushing them out with WD-40 once in a while. (I do it every 6 months). racing twice a week once outside once on carpet
