I hadn't see any premium brand names associated with their bearings, so I'll bet they're just Chinese cheapies. Which doesn't necessarily mean anything - I use lots of Chinese bearings, but if you're running a $400-500 race mill, I'd opt for some top notch bearings. My top choice would be WIB Swiss bearings, personally. For budget sport engines, just about anything will work.

I use Chinese cheapos in my truggy for pretty much everything, I haven't had one fail yet, I just change out the clutch bearings every main. But wheel bearings are doing fine.

If you look around you can find the same bearings they sell at places like Avid for a buck a piece on ebay, straight from China for .30 or .40 cents a piece if you don't mind waiting 1-2 weeks for shipping.

a lot of people buy fast eddy bearings.

avid bearings seem to hold up good. if you buy a whole kit for your car it's cheaper too.

Avid RC Bearings and Accessories for radio controlled vehicles, your one stop shop for RC bearings, RC wheels, RC accessories, RC springs, and much more.
just to prove a point, this company uses avid bearings in their modified engines, http://www.thenitroshop.com/tns-modi...-full-ceramic/

if you got the money, boca bearings..
https://www.bocabearings.com/

if you're just a basher and running a traxxas ect buy the cheap ebay bearings. don't expect a lot out of them.

I bought a buttload of ebay 5x10s thinking id change them after every race.never had so many dnfs due to one of the bearings exploding then taking out the spur gearor clutchbell. No issues with the 8x16s i got but those 5x10s sucked big time
