The second place guy switched tires in the closing stages of final and the winner gambled- He did not...

Ti-bits are screw set

Bearings are: https://www.brilliant-rc.com/brilliant-rc-bearing-sets

They are not rubber sealed, so less friction. These are endorsed by Shepherd, and I believe they are steel not ceramic. I think the only ceramics they have are diff balls for electric cars.

Hello,
yes our Brilliant bearings are steel-beraings.
These are very high quality bearings with less friction then most ceramic on the market.
Also for the 1/8 scale they are near to maintance-free. We put them in and use them for a whole season.
That explains the high price.

Greetings
