Default Ceramic Bearings

Is it worth it to use ceramic bearing throughout the car or is it a useless expense?

Thanks in advance,
Nog.

in terms of maintenance, ceramics won't wear as quick as steel bearings but they will still require cleaning and oiling. Better to just replace steels more often (you could probably get 5 steel bearings for a ceramic).

but they will offer a slight performance advantage, that probably won't be useful unless you're the most consistent driver at your race
