I have found that if you are not going to upgrade to the ceramic bearings then your best bet is to stick with the kit bearings. Kit bearings that came with my Tamiya 415, Corally RDX, Associated TC3/TC4, X-ray, Losi XXX-s and Schumacher Mi2 (all cars I have had in the last years) are pretty darn good. The only reason I could find to replace any of these bearings is if i were to go ceramic!

90% of the kit bearing come from the same place as replacement bearings... steel is steel.. just make sure the seal is god and you take care of them... honestly check ebay.. you can get sets fgor 5-15 bucks.. why pay 30-60 for kit bearings.. my kit bearings were always crap compared to the replacemens to

you can buy complete set of bearings for a lot of cars on Acerbearings they sell not only ceramic but nirided ball bearings too.

I have a question regarding to ceramic: at acerbearigs you pay 99$ for a set of ceramics and you can buy ceramic for the saame car on ebay for ~40$. Is the acer worth the extra money? Do you guys have any experience with those cheaper bearings?
