People call the teflon-shielded bearings "teflon bearings" because it is easier to say. Just like many people will order a coke when the actual name is coca cola :)

If a couple of bearings are bad and you reinstall them, the effect could be pretty bad. Typically when a bearing feels rough it is the result of some of the balls wearing out, or something wrong with one of the races. In any case, it is likely that the bearing will get worse and eventually destroy itself. unfortunately, if the baring is in a hub carrier or diff then other parts will be damaged as well, costing even more money The smarter choice is to replace them.

Thanks for the advice crazy71... I did not know that. I simply thought the car would hang more and more.

I had to reinstall those bearings to race today and was deciding whether or not I wanted to upgrade to ceramic bearings. I'd hate to waste all the other good bearings I have but I have another TC3 pilot by my little brother-in-law and he might be able to use the bearings with some success.

100$ is pricey though. I'll wait until Acer has a sale...
