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.
Ceramic Bearings can run faster than all steel bearings due to the lower centrifugal force generated by the ceramic balls, ceramic balls are lighter and harder than steel, the speed increase for Ceramic Bearings is 30 – 40% with adequate lubrication. Ceramic Bearings are less subjected to ball skidding under initial acceleration / torque. This allows the bearing to last longer and be far more reliable. Low heat expansion allows the bearing retainers to last longer.
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.
