    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?

    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.

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