Default Bearings for Losi 8 2.0

I have a losi 8 2.0 and it is time to replace all the bearings in the car. Any ideas of what kind to put in it? thanks, Blake

Avids will work just fine. I run mine around a gallon and then I chunk them in the trash.

IMO the $1 tko bearings roll longer than the $1 avid stuff. I can't say th same for their engine bearings but wheel and drivetrain the tko stuff works very well. In the clutch nothing beats the tko special bearings. I drop them in and forget about them. Avids are good but the tko $1 are better.

They dont do a kit and they don't have the steering post bearings but I usually get packs of 10 anyway.
