Avid are all I run and at $1/bearing they can't be beat for bang for the buck. The rubber/metal sheilded bearing are the best out right as far as performance and durability.

TKO Bearings without question. They have a great line of both steel and ceramic for the whole Losi 8ight platform. The quality IMHO, before sponsorship, was second to none! I used just about every brand for CB bearings and found that the TKO specials for the Losi clutch were in league of their own, they last forever. No pre-Main worries what so ever.

I had 1 (10) pack of each size of special CB bearings last me from March '09 til late May or early June of this year. The dollar bearing users have me beat big in the $ catagory. Incredibly well built, races are very thick and sturdy.

Just put regular TKO steels throughout the buggy recently and their still butter, though they'll be cleaned before next weekend. Clean em lube em and blow the lube out of the CB bearings...

Readyrollers are the best bearings I have used. I have a year on one set of ceramics in my Losi. clutch bell bearings last a long time. They are very good bearings.

The best bearings I have ever used were the acer racing ceramic nitride. But now I use whatever is in stock at our shop. I no longer wish to service my bearings so I use the cheep disposible ones from Avid, answer RC, or ready roller. They are all pretty much the same and all last long enough for me

avid or ready rollers thru out the whole truck except the clutch. I will only use Tko Special bearings for the clutch, They extend the life of your clutch and they last forever
