    Boca are hands down the best iv used. Avid are good but boca seems to seal a bit better.

    When my stock bearings were done for I changed them for Acer ceramic bearings, so far so good ( 2 years later )

    I only use Avid bearings. My Summit, 1/18 Rally, Slash 2wd, and Slash 4x4 all have full Avid bearing kits in them. The Summit kit is over 1 1/2 years old, with no issues to date. Same with all my other trucks, no issues to date. Every 3-4 months I completely tear apart my trucks and I re-pack all the bearings with marine grease too.

    On critical spots such as diff, tranny... I try to use quality ceramic bearings. But on spots where the bearings are exposed anyway and have to be replaced frequently like the axle carriers I use cheapos.
