sampaio: Best to email Acer yourself with that enquiry. They can do different bearing kit configuations I think.

I use the ceramic nitride set (except in the rear upright) in my 415MSX. They are great, not too badly priced compared to other bearing companies, and the advantage being an overseas person is fast, free postage. I got my bearings within a week, from the US to Australia.

I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to upgrade from their kit bearings, especially if you live overseas.

As I remembered, both kit should have the same amount of bearings, if not the WC should have more since it has one more belt tensioner than the regular M2, but on their website, the 414WC only has 16 bearings, and for M2, there are 20 bearings?!

Which is the right kit to buy for my 414M?

Also, what are your experience with Acer products?

Thanks for replying
TRF 414M and TRF 414M2 are the same car, just different colours you can get the set for the M2 no problem. I actually got a set of the ceramics in my 414M and they're awesome. However the ones for the layshaft came with a weird shield, but admittedly those bearings don't really need to be ceramics, the tandard ones never seize and spin very free indeed.

The companies can order bearings with mineral based oils that are very easy to clean out. Some use Aeroshell but there are normally many to choose from. The problem with the light oils is that they get smelly oil all over the place.

For most applications a standard bearing will do just fine. The difference in drag between standards and ceramics isn't enough to make a huge difference. You can gain a lot more from set-up and battery/motor/gear.

I have no recommendation for the 414 application, but I can chime in on Acer bearings. I have had very good experience with them. I have purchased ceramic bearings from many different sources and I would buy Acer before all the rest. They seem to be the most durable I have owned. Good bearings .
