Feedback from a customer:
I received this order a couple of days ago, and have installed these new bearings in my Bergen Magnum 90 R/C helicopter. As I do maintenance and repair to this aircraft I always change out the stock OEM bearings with quality Boca Bearings. I have used your bearings in several of my R/C engines over the past several years, and so far have had no failures or reason to replace them.
Thank you again for providing the R/C hobbyist with top quality bearings for our aircraft! Keep up the good work!!
Here is a photo of my Bergen 90 “Iraqi Freedom” in flight a few months ago. I chose that name after buying this helicopter from a U.S. Army Warrant Officer helicopter pilot who has served two tours in Iraq flying light gunships. In honor of Mr. Belcher I chose that name as well as made his two deployment patches into decals that I put on the side of the canopy of the helicopter.
I was a Crew Chief on a UH-1 and CH-37B in Viet Nam in the mid 1960’s, and honor those who have taken helicopters to war…
Thanks again for your great products!

A week ago I attended the Wicked Weekend in Gainesville, Ga. In qualifying Saturday I was able to get the TQ position in truggy and start fifth on the grid for buggy.Sunday was main day, I lead the thirty minute truggy main from start to finish. After 6 minutes into the thirty minute buggy main, I took over first place. I lead the race for 20 minutes until some contact with lap traffic flipped me over and the engine quit. With only 3 minutes left I was only able to get back up to fourth place.
All in all it was a great race weekend. Both cars ran very well and thanks to Boca, I can report 0 bearing failures. They’re virtually frictionless bearings allow for a very smooth free drivetrain enabling me to go longer between fuel stops than my competition! Thanks Boca!

Emory Lyda won the Tag Mini class at the 2014 Maxxis Summer Shootout held at Carolina Motorsports Park on Saturday with a 4.5 second lead over 2nd place.
He has been racing the Rotax series in outdoor kart racing at CMP and Gopro Motorplex (Mooresville, NC) and has numerous podium finishes but this was his first win.
I ordered a set of Boca Bearings for my Shimano Curado 200E7 baitcasting reel. I needed extra casting distance and was tired of stock bearings getting corroded so quickly with use in the saltwater (inshore fishing in San Diego, California). Long story short, I am pleased! Got the bearings rather quickly in the mail and they have made fishing more pleasurable for myself.

This quarter for me consisted of mainly club racing at novelty raceway and LRT raceway. At the season opener in novelty missouri I managed a pair of third place finishes in open buggy and truggy. A couple of weeks later I was off to evansdale iowa to LRT raceway with a second place finish in pro buggy and a first place finish in pro truggy. The one weekend event for the quarter was the jconcepts spring nationals in omaha nebraska. I ran expert nitro buggy and truggy.
Had a strong run going in truggy racing for fifth place when with four minutes to go in the 45 minute main I had to pull off the track with a broken shock shaft putting me back to a 9th place finish. Buggy qualifying didnt go as well so I started toward the front of the c main after a rough start putting me to the back of the field I decided to try and stretch it for the 10 minute fuel run since the main was only a 10 minute race. With 9 minutes down I found myself in a transfer position only to run out of fuel at the 9m45s mark to end my weekend in buggy.
