The thing with ceramic bearings is they pretty much last forever unlike the day of the steel bearing,so I don't mind spending money on something that isn't going to need to be replaced.

I agree. I have been playing with roller blades for years and simply the HIGHER the rating number, the better they go. Trust me... when you are doing the pushing, you can easily feel the difference. I wouldn't touch anything lower than ABEC 5 for my blades.

Correct?
Not quite sure what you're talking about. I have a feeling that Acer and Boca are pulling a fast one on us or just don't know their own product by mixing up the ball grade and ABEC rating. Ball bearings are always graded by ABEC. Ball grade dosen't mean much if the races in the bearings aren't built properly.

Yeah, what the hell is going on; we're getting conflicting info. Good thing we all know better

Apparently there are two ratings,one for the balls in the bearings for which a lower # is better and the other is for the overall bearing (ABEC#) for which a higher # is better.Geez, you really do learn something new everyday.

Default Simple question

You say x is better bearing or x bearing is smoother faster then y bearing.

it should be easy for you to put a car on a stand, crank the motor to full, measure RPM then swap out bearings and measure the RPM.

Yeah, I know there are 19 reasons why this test proves nothing or is flawed or is not a true measure. So how did you determine the difference?


If a company made or sold bearings
and
their bearings were indeed superior
or their bearings provided a measurable improvement in speed of an RC car, they could provide real numbers real graphs.

A person then could determine if that was $100+ well spent compared to other options.

I'm using Acers right now, and love 'em but have to admit, I did clean them out and put some Trinity Royal oil in them. My Yoke spins for about 9secs though. If you're counting that out loud, that's pretty long. Boca's are 196.00 dollars for a set, WHOA!
I don't know what other manufacturers are using for their ceramics, but some ceramic bearings can go as 'low' as Grade#25...

I searh that entire web site and did not see the 415 set that cost 196bucks
