Default Bearings in the Novak Ballistic

Hey All,

I recently finished setting up my VTA racer with ceramic bearings throughout, and I was just curious if anyone knows if the Ballistic 25.5 comes with ceramic bearings. I see where they sell the ceramic bearings online but I cant tell if they are replacement bearings or if they are an upgrade. Any help is much appreciated.

Says on the site the ceramic bearing is an optional item and the replacement bearing is steel.

Our ceramic bearings are an upgrade item for our Ballistic motors. We just introduced a Premium Spec motor (optimized for Oval) that has the ceramic bearings installed.

Not sure that you even need ceramic for VTA----you could ask here:

To quote the official VTA rules...

"Using ceramic bearings in the motor makes you a dork."

As mentioned above, there's really no need in a VTA motor, but if you just want to.. go for it.
