Default Ceramic Bearings

Can anybody tell me the benefit of using ceramic bearings over the stock teflon sealed bearings?

Thanks for the quick reply.

I saw some ceramic bearings on a website for $119. Does it make that much difference to spend that much on some bearings?



I saw a video of your car, nice driving.

i have that set of bearing on my car too ran it two weeks ago and like it very much. the video was taken one year ago when MTX3 first launched. It was with factory setting. very nice car to work with.

Holy crap Manti.. have you ever thought of entering into major races?

It's scary to think what you're capable of with a dialed setup

i retired from race now a day. too much trouble preparing for a race day and most important is that Sunday is family day. I do enjoy the hobby and I usually run my cars almost non-stop on saturday.
