Default weird clutch bearings.

hi, i have a xray 808 power'd by a GO-Engines gx7r.

i had a set of clutch sized bearings lying around that i thought i would try out,(not made for RC clutches)
not ceramic. metal shielded.

now i didnt expect these to last very long. however.
its now 6 gallons later, still smooth. no play. i have never even looked at these when cleaning my buggy or replacing clutch etc just checked they were smooth..

anyone else ran into anything like this?

I have been loving the tko special clutch bearings. They are made to handle the thrashing that a clutch can do on bearings. Metal shield is great for low resistance but sometimes not realistic in off road racing. Bottom line is if it's working go with it.
