Default Boca Bearings

I ran Acer bearings for a long time until I changed over to Boca Bearings. I'll never buy from another company again. They carry all types of bearings and are very durable and long lasting. I run Orange Seal bearings in my Xray that are ABEC7 but also run yellow seals in my 415 that are ABEC1. Car was fast at the last TCS regionals...If you wanna go low budge, Boca also has it's 99cent bearings.

I have bought through VXB bearings on ebay.Go to his direct website and there are multiple grades of bearings on there where his ebay store is kinda limited.The service was fast and the bearings are much better than the metal sheilded ones my cars come with.The guy has metal ,rubber,teflon,open,all iin different abec ratings, plus ceramic balls , chrome balls, ceramic bearings, just about anything you could want in the way of bearings. Plus he is located in the USA!!! so no 2 week wait for your stuff!!

If I order bearings, I will probs go with VXB due to the above post and also how I heard a lot of good things about VXB in general before.

[QUOTE=imprsme;6106489]Best bearings for the $$$:

Website: avidrc.com

So what does a "MA10" and "MA11" equivalent too in terms of bearing size?

+1 Agree, rubber shielded bearings are typically found in lower cost, RTR cars....

I'm pretty sure WalaWala is ABEC35.com.

And another thumbs up from me, they've been great the 3 or 4 times I've ordered.

[QUOTE=niznai;6106295]ABEC35 is a bearing/steel standard not a company (kinda like HSS for tool steel, etc).

Not to be an a$$ but Walawala's bearing brand is called ABEC35.

AND, yes you are right, bearing standards such as ABEC1, 3, 5, 7 & 9 exsist.


Its all good.....

i agree! i am a local customer of VXB, and this place has a very WIDE variety of choices. one of the bearings in a novak 4300 motor i traded for was blown and they had the exact size i was looking for and it was cheap! just dropped by, told em what i wanted, paid and left in about 5 minutes.

i am not affiliated with vxb in any way

I buy all my bearings from Walawala on ebay.

They have good bearings (seem to have the same quality as the original kit bearings) and excellent price.
