ceramic bearings: questions

I'm interesed to purchase a ceramic bearing set for my SD
I have a few questions
Is it recommended like normal bearings to remove their shield and to put off their grease ?Since they are very expensive i don't want to risk to damage them?
How often do they need to be cleaned?

I have bought both their top of the line and the less expensive ceramic sets for a tc3 . Not a bad product , but not the best bearring on the market... I clean mine after every race , oil lightly before every run. I got about a year out of mine running them every sunday. I bought a set of niftech bearrings and have never seen quality like this . Free as free can be. I have had these over a year and they spin a good today as the day they were installed. Put it this way , i will never buy anything other than these for any car i own again . The tc3 ran about $130.00 u.s . they dont sell to hobbie shops they are direct only. go to www.niftech.com They may not have a kit , but you can buy each one you need depending on your car. Hope this helps

If you want the best ceramics around at the best price around check out www.rc4less.com He has the TC3, Mission, and XXXS in stock right not and at the end of the month he will have the Xray, Barracuda, EVO3 and Yokomo SD in stock. He ordered 10 sets of each of those to start off with so If you want one you better act fast.

I have been running a set since the snowbirds last year and havent had one sigle failure or bearing get gritty!! All I do is spray them out once a month and put Zubaks speed lube on them every race day.
