I am in the process of building a brand new TC3 for this carpet season. I have Ray's chassis all ready to go, Warpspeed diff cases on their way, however I am still looking for the best bearings.

The stock AE ones, even when blown out still arent that amazingly free. I tried the $20 set off ebay, and they worked okay after they had 30 runs on them, and then they started to go after 40 runs.

Anyone know of really really good quality metal shielded bearings? My main priority is that they are free. Teflon and rubber shieded bearing arent nearly as free as metal ones, so please dont just say the stock ones, or suggest ones with non-metal shields. Although i do really apprecaite any help i can get. Thanks!

Niftech has some pretty good metal bearings but they're a little pricey

well i take it that carpet is not too dirty

such as racing in a parking lot, so i would use the new air sheild berrings

less friction then metal, but lot of maintainance(once a month)

bubbles- who makes those bearings? and ya, its for carpet only.

trinity- how long does your drivetrain spin for with foam tires or rubber tires on? also if you spin the bearing with your hand how much does it spin(ie a rotation, two rotations... etc)

thanks!

If you want some of the best ceramic bearings at a great price try www.rc4less.com. He has some for the TC3 full sets for around 120.00. And they have a very good apec rating as well.

HeY!!! zzcutter... i don't think you'll gain any speed w/ that chasis just a ll lighter and then it might help out w/ handling. mayb a monster stock motor if you don't got one, or tune it.
