V2 Premium Bearings vs Standard
Our Standard Bearings are ABEC 3 and designed specifically for RC Cars, they are better than the original factory bearings of most RC manufacturers. Our V2 Premiums are ABEC 7 which means they are more precise with closer tolerances, the individual components such as the balls are manufactured to a higher standard, the races are within .001mm. From our testing, we have found that the V2 Premiums remain smoother for longer, outlasting any standard bearing with less chance of a failure, they are made to the highest standard that our manufacturer can produce. The V2 Premium range of bearings are used by our racing team which consists of several current and past Australian Champions including Kyle McBride, Ryan Maker & Chris Sturdy, these guys rely on our product when travelling to compete internationally at the highest level.
Pro Racers V2C Kit
This kit was developed with the assistance of our Team Drivers. We found that Ceramic wheel bearings do not last as long as steel bearings, due to the hardness of ceramic balls and the conditions that wheel bearings endure, premature wear of the steel rings was found to be common in comparison to our V2 Premium Steel Bearings. Another factor is that wheel bearings generally spin 4 times slower than the driveline (dependant on gear ratio’s), Ceramic bearings are most advantageous at higher speeds, therefore there is less advantage to using them in the wheels. This was the result for both onroad and offroad cars across different platforms, offroad cars are more harsh on wheel bearings in terms of the impacts they face when landing jumps and riding through rough surfaces, onroad cars endure less bumps but more high speed cornering which places high loads on the balls and races, in all cases we found that ceramic bearings would prematurely wear compared to V2 Premium steel bearings when used in the wheels. Ceramic Bearings perform very well in spur gears and diffs with no performance or longevity issues. Another advantage, the V2C Kit is cheaper than a full ceramic kit.
What kit should I choose?
This comes down to personal preference and budget, as a beginner / club racer you would be best off selecting the V2 Premium kit, all round this is going to be durable and perform well, lasting longer than factory bearings or our standard bearing kits. If you are competing seriously and looking for every advantage possible, the V2C Kit is the way to go, all of our Team Drivers run the V2C Bearings.
All bearings are available individually if you require more of a particular size.
Plaig Bearings are a stronger, more reliable bearing with greater heat resistance and superior life to the standard factory bearings. We stock all other sizes of bearings for RC Cars and also sell Complete Bearing Kits for many popular brands of vehicles.
