I'll second what others have said, both cars are very good and capible of winning any given day. The Tamiya shocks are really nice, but the car is more fragile. Ths biggest difference is in the build; xray is hands down the easiest car to build with each subassembly in there own pouches no hunting for the right part. Tamiya is 180 the other way, pour the contents of the box out and start hunting for sll the parts.

What bearing sets (Ceramic or not) is everyone running?

I checked some of my bearings and the ones in the steering knuckles and rear uprights aren't so good anymore. Dont know if its worth it to get a set of ceramics or what.

I have been using the ones RC4less.com sells for years. Resonably priced and last forever. Right now he only has the hub bearings in the smaller size for the alumn hubs though.

Depends on the application...center one ways make the car easier to drive... Back in the day (which was a wednesday for all you DC fans..) double one-ways was the ticket. Front and center.......

thanks butter, well I plan on racing it at the Village raceway MDI in Royal Palm Beach. I know you are familiar with the track. I set up my front to be one-way, my question is will this aluminum middle one way be effective in these circumstances, thanks.

Personally, I chose to spend $28US on two full sets of el-cheapo asian bearings (sold on ebay) instead of $90-100US on one full set of ceramics. After a over a month of use they feel like new, which I think is good enough for me.

I started using the "cheaper" ABEC3 bearings with looser tolerances, and they seem to be lasting longer than more expensive ABEC5 bearings. The nicer bearings were getting owned by carpet fibers.

Here's the place to buy your bearings on eBay in bulk:
