the ordinary bearings are fine! there is not a need for those
agree. ceramic bearing should be used for precision tools but not for high speed application. the bearing shell will wear out much faster then the ceramic balls on high speed application.

DAMN !! 18 bearings for $260 !! I think i'll opt for the other set of ceramic bearings that manticore just mentioned. I know of a person who bought ceramic bearings for a losi xxx-s and his ride was pretty smooooth.

Dude,i've already got a set,they go perfect with my bone stock mtx3 LOL!

Manti the a set of ceramics will be a good match with the bearing job you done on the M**.Maybe you can do it the same way just swap the balls but you could have a hard time seeing them LOL.

Pick them Tommy, you will not regret of them. Received past Thu and the next day was testing at the track. Loved it.

BTW: Anybody wants a complete 1.0 gearing set for the MTX3?
