Default ProTek wheel bearings for NTC3

Anyone tried them before? Are they as good or better than the stock original Associated bearings...??

Nothing, the stock ones are good, it's just the ProTek's are cheaper in price they $9.99 for 10 bearings. $30 for 10 of the stock bearings. I just dunno if the ProTek's will last as long as the stocks/if they are not as good quality as the stocks...

Seems like at that price...the best thing for you to do is buy them and try them out. I have used their bearings in my Kyosho FW-05RR's steering rack and they work well, but they were replacing metal bushings. So, anything is better that.

The lifespan of a bearing is hard to tell, it is how you treat them...

But indeed, for a dollar a bearing it is easy to give it a try.
