Acer all the way. Regarless of what other say, Acer uses the highest quality ceramic balls available (some are confused on the quality rating system). They do get better with time. The seals require little to no maintenance and they are plastic so if you get into an accident, the sheild will not bend into the cage and ruin the bearing as metal cages will do. They also keep dirt and stuff out of the bearing about 100% better than any other seal. I have never had to pull a carpet fiber from my Acer Ceramics.

I feel many that have tried Acer ceramic bearings make a big mistake. When new the Acer Ceramics will not seem as free as they should so many clean them and relube them before they have been run....big mistake in my experience. These bearings need to be broken in and I recommend breaking them in as they came from the factory. After 10-20 runs, these bearings are incredible and get better with every run. 1 set will last you forever!!

Sounds like a self-lubricating thing. Are they intentionally not polished, so some of it rubs off?

Check out our ceramics - They're super smooth and metal shielded, assembled with ABEC5 ceramic balls.. And they're cheaper then Acer or Boca..

We currently have kits for the TC3/TC4, and have kits for the X-RAY comin soon.

The Bocas Iv'e had are full ceramic..........and beware, most people who sell bearings in the r/c industry are just profesional re-packagers......they get'em from the real company for next to nothing and mark'em up 800% percent.......Boca's are the real deal

EVERY ball is ceramic in ours -- top notch.. A few days ago I go an e-mail from of our team drivers who was saying how his TC4 transmission just spins and spins now...

Oh and we had our bearings designed to our specifications. We told them what we want, and they made them.. It took 2 months, but it was well worth the wait..

I'm running Surge ceramic bearings in my BMI TC3. They worked and I didn't have to rob a bank to pay for them. I'm very happy with them.

Hey Gary... I need a set for my TC4 now.
