went ahead and bought them since most of the bearings on my TC ( little over 1 year old) feel like its at their lifes end. Honestly there is no difference on the track. But hopefully they will outlast my stock steel bearings.

I've run Acer ceramic bearings for a few years, always happy with the performance out of them, barely need any maintenance, last for years

So is it true that they have a break in period? When you got them were they free spinning or did they feel kind of slugish?

Mine were a little sluggish from the beginning to the end. I made the experience that these bearings are very strong when it comes to impacts and chrashes. But they had no other advantage to steel bearings. I would recommend to use them for the axles only.

Thanks for all the replies but just had a gut feeling and pulled the trigger on some Boca bearings for my TC. I may still get some Acer bearings for another car later to try.
