However I think I gonna spent the money for 1 ceramic bearing kit and make myself an opinion or I'll try the capricorn car of a friend of mine :-) (didn't knew it has ceramic bearings). Already heard it runs very smooth and accelerates very quick but the acceleration should be a matter of the gearing the have.

Are there ceramic bearings which are better then others despite BOCA and Acer?
Hey Basti,

I really like the Abec35 X-type bearings.
They have a different construction so they align better to the wheel axle.
So less friction, they have a bit more lateral play as to normal bearings but this can be shimmed out using shims on the wheel axle.
I use the normal metal one's, because I don't like cleaning bearings, I just change them when they feel gritty, and I don't think the huge price difference can be justified.
