    Wat do u all think??

    They run in price around $100. The only place I see them being used is with pro's in magazines. That leads me to think that they are pretty good bearings. But for recreational purpose, do u think they're worth the money?

    i wouldnt think so.thats a lot of money for bearings.pros only use them because they are givin to them from there sponsers and they are paid to use them.

    No not at all, cost alone is to much. Good ol bolink or a sealed bearing work fine anything is better than a bushing, RED

    Well back to R/C hows all your stuff running? Took 2 Maxxes out and the GT this past weekend ,all are running premo, ran about 1/4 gal threw them, ended up replacing one spur gear on one of the Maxxes not a big deal friction pads were still good so I was happy about that, other than that all worked out great.

    im thinking a 17t and i dont care what one. then maybe later on i will get a 12t but my 20t just isnt doing it.it has lost power and isnt rebuildable.its just there so they could call it rtr.

    Smart thinking, the 17t is a great sport motor and when matched with the correct gearing and cells you cant go wrong, RED
