Axle bearings

Postby Jeff » Wed May 18, 2016 9:42 am

There are a lot of different axle bearings out there that run from $7 to $32, what's the difference? Does anyone have a preference?

The best ones since I began in racing in 1974 have been GRW bearings. I sell them for $29.99pr. & much prefer the thick,dbl.shielded ones over the thin,unshielded ones.

Ok, excellent. Do they make motor bearings as well?

Yes, they are the most highly regarded also. There are 2 X 5mm flanged & unflanged as well as 2 X 5 X 2.3 'fat' bearings that are dbl. shielded. Besides that 2 X 6 bearings are available fro older or some Chinese motors.
