Default Avid bearings decent quality?

They are pretty cheap at $1/each, all sizes it seems. Are these decent quality or comparible to stock Losi 8 bearings? Some Losi bearings are like $7/each.

Thanks!

AVID bearings are just as good if not better than Losi bearings. I've run them for years now and have saved myself a ton of cash. You should be able to do the whole car for $18.00

Also the 13x19x4 bearings on the new Xray will last longer if you use AVID.

Avid RC has been a great company to me, I have emailed David is a great guy to deal with. I also like there Indo brakes, they realy do a great job on both of my 8ight's! Highly recommend Avid RC.

Avids are the best in R/C today, many have tried to copy them.

the fact theyre only a buck a piece is misleading I guess.... just because they dont gouge the customer like so many do these days.

I've been an Avid bearing user for three years now and they have never let me down in cost and performance.

Default Avid Bearings

Avids are the best bearings you buy, David Joor is a stand up guy and stands behind his product 100%!!! That is the only place to get your brakes and bearings!!!!

I would love to try them, but I found they had only 3/4 of the sizes I needed when looking to place my initial order of backup bearing stock, 10 of each size for an 8-T.... ReadyRoller was 100% in stock on what I needed.

When I had my 8ight I got every bearing for the car from them... some may have been out of stock for a while, but AVID usually has them all.

If you get them, get the Avid Revolutions. I have had the best results with them.
