Default Siezed Xray bearings

Is anyone having problems with their layshaft bearings.
I had one seize up on me last week while racing, Replaced it with a new one from Xray, took the car out to test this morning and the other one seized up , i have also replaced the layshaft. Any help regarding this matter would be most welcome

Are you running a spool or oneway?

You do have to stay on top of the maintaince of the layshaft bearings,Alot of RPM's and the bearings are small and they do have a load on them.I have burned up a few..

That little bearing takes a beating. Mine have probably gone bad already jsut havent really cared. If the car is still running good then i will leave it in, but i have noticed is that the bearing seal (blue thing that goes aroudn the bearing) likes to come off.
