    updated bearings?

    hello, I'm new to the RC world and was wondering before I buy the traxxas replacement, is there a better bearing (P# 5119 ) than what traxxas has? mine pretty much disintegrated
    thanks

    ceramic bearings are pretty much the top of the line

    but if u dont clean the bearings regularly, no matter what u put in there, they are going to fail

    yeah I kept them clean or tried to. I know this truck requires regular maintenance it just all of a sudden broke into pieces. it made a loud grinding noise so i stopped and took it apart and was lucky just to find the bearing failed. I found a shielded bearing online for about 4 bucks so I'm going to try it out. if it works out I will post my results.
    thanks for the friendly advice guys.
