Default I Need Some Bearing Input Please

So I started tearing my AE 1/8 buggy down and want to replace the bearings. I dont want to do OEM ones cause I feel I maybe should of got more life out of half of them that went bad. Yes I take care and maintain my buggy. What are some good after market kits for my buggy at a reasonable price. I hear christmas present to myself coming up

Josh, the best way to do it would be to make a list of the sizes your car takes then buy sleeves of 10 packs of each size bearing. You get them for about $1 per bearing and you will have extra bearings in your box for when you need them. The last thing you want is to buy 1 bearing kit, and then have a bearing failure at the track and you have to go home because you dont have any spares. I can help if you want, send me PM. Answer-RC, Avid, and Ready Rollers all make some great bearings that are cheep and last awhile if cared for properly.

I agree some bearing i change out more frequency. On a big race day, day before prep and change out just for sake of mind> Avid Rev have been good but CB i go with TKO.
