To me the rc4less bearings are the best ceramics around. Their kits come with EVERY bearing for the car....Not just the outdrives, axles, and driveshaft. The metal sheilds are better than the poly sheilds to me. They roll much better than and poly/rubber sheild bearing.

Just my opinion for what its worth.

Any of you guys tried their carbide diff balls? I was thinking of giving them a shot since they're cheaper than the xray ones...

No but if they're like their tungsten diff balls then you're in for one smooth diff.

Thats what I'm hoping. Too bad they don't have thrust bearings... the dang carbide thrust bearings from x ray are like $18 a pop!

But man, carbide diff balls and thrust bearings... soooo tempting....

The Acer Ceramic Kit comes with all the bearings for the TC3, except for the steering rack...same as the RC4Less Ceramic kits. Acer does offer 2 versions of this kit, one for the steel outdrives and one for the composite (they use different size bearings). Make sure you specify which outdrives you use. The RC4Less metal shields still let dirt and debris into the bearing, you will not have that problem with the Acer kit.

Go with the Ceramic Diff balls. They are not cheap ($18.00 per diff) but they are smoother, lighter and you should never have to replace them. After 2 years of racing, mine are still perfect.

i just received some Acer stuff i ordered. I run a TC3 and speced out the whole car, with ceramic bearing set & diff balls the cost was $195, a little steep for me. so i ordered the Polyamide bearing set and HCCA diff balls (both sizes) total cost was $75 unfortunaly they sent me the Teflasonic bearing set instead of the Polyamides but they are taking care of that for me. I did feel the Teflasonic bearings & they where very smooth, i think that set is just $30 which would be a great buy i my mind. I'll be interested to get my Polyamide bearing & try them but so far i am impressed with Acer & their products. don'f forget to get some of their Ultra-O shock o-rings, $2 for pack of 10

Hey fellas just got a new set of Acer ceramic bearings. What I want to know is before I install them into my car should I clean and lube them or do I just pop'um straight in? Thanks.

The only thing you might have to do with new Acer Ceramic Bearings is clean any oil that has accumulated on the outside of the bearing...if you put the bearings in you car with this oil coating, it will attract unwanted dirt and debris.
After that, just pop them in and they are good to go. Just give them 10-15 good runs and they will be broken in.
