Great bearings, I use them in all of my onroad and offroad cars. They have a great selection and you can't beat the price or service.

For the price you cant beat them! They are extreamly high quality and at a buck each you just cant go wrong.

the only thing i would recommend with these bearings is to get rid of the thick grease and put some light bearing oil in them as they are very thick and dont spin very free.. but other than that you cant beat them for replacemnt bearings.

I've used them a lot in the past, and they've been good to me. That said, you can definitely beat the price, especially if you buy in bulk (25, 50, etc...)

I believe they are talking about Avid RC, I use them in all my cars as well. Can't beat the price or the service. David runs a top notch service there. If you go with Avid for your bearings you will not be dissapointed.

I'm not sure they are great bearings, I'm sure there are better quality bearings out there...... but you simply cannot beat the price and quick service/shipping. I've ordered multiple times.
