Default bearings

looking to replace bearings on the cheap (well not too cheap if they are not worth buying) and want to know thoughts on where to get a set for the best $. Duratrax sets are fine if thats the way to go. not racing this particular car going to bash it/parking lot fun runs so I really don't need anything more than metal shielded. I will take care of them but I got the car used and the previous owner didn't

$1 bearings at Avid are the only way to go. They ship SUPER fast as well. F walawala. Yes it takes almost three weeks to get anything from them. But just wait until the first time wala sends you the wrong items and see what fun you'll have trying to get them to correct their mistake. Avid has a no questions asked return/refund policy and they stick to it like a good company should.

www.bocabearing.com. I order from them all the time, They have every possible type of bearing from regular shielded, rubber shielded, hybrid, and full ceramic. Usually if you get the 4 pack, or full set, its much cheaper than individual.

...boca bearings also has their .99c bearing deals - and I believe over a $15.00 order is FREE SHIPPING
