Default Bearing choises?

Okay, I would like to have really free bearings, however, I dont want to degrease all my bearings, because I dont have the time to tear the car apart and oil them all the time.

So...

Is there a bearing which will be an upgrade to ordinary ball bearings and which DONT require a lot of maintenance? If so, whats the price? compared to ordinary ball bearings?

Thanks.

Acer ceramics is pretty good.They seem to free up the longer you run them. Just add a drop of light oil on them and they're like new! I think the price is at about 89-99 $ for a full set for a full set for a car.
But that's the Polyamide-sealed, Metal sealed is a tad cheaper.

i oil them before the start of the season, then after about 6-7 races i take'em out and relube them. You can probably run much longer on them before cleaning.
Not one of my Acers has breaked even after 1,5 years running them. Standard Yokomo broke after 2 races or less
