Boca Bearings RC Newsletter: Issue 1

The F104X1 is Tamiya's latest and greatest super F1. There has been a few design updates from the F104 Pro that allow you to really dial it in to any track surface. While it does ride on a quality set of shielded ball bearings, installing a high-end set of Boca Bearings will really enhance the performance of the car. There is not only a noticeable increase on the track but is also a very easy install.

For this install we will be using Boca's Ceramic Lightning Ultra Seal Bearing set, part #55-590C YU. At a retail cost of around $55 that's not a bad investment for a little extra speed....more

RC Car & Truck Ceramic Lightning Econo Bearing kits are specially designed for on-road or relatively clean driving environments.

All Ceramic Lightning Econo bearings are packed in grease and will require a short break in period to loosen up. Kit (20)XRAY M18 PRO...more

Q: How do your different RC Bearing lines compare to the stock bearings that came pre-installed? How much longer will they last?

A:Unfortunately there is never an explicit warranty with bearings. Bearings do eventually wear out and every application, setup and operator is different. It is very difficult to calculate life expectancy without having extremely detailed data about your application. But Boca Bearings has been in business since 1987 and we stand behind our product 100%. We will always replace or exchange any bearings that we determine to have failed prematurely. As a rule of thumb we would say:

Our Econo Power shielded bearings are comparable to what comes stock with your vehicle, so you should expect the same life as those that you get right out of the box with your car. Because these are shielded bearings they will require maintenance to get a long life. You will want to clean and re-lube them regularly to extend the life or you will have to replace them often...more
