This is the original. This bearing can be used on any type of vehicle. Perfect for those looking to upgrade from stock kit bearings, or serious racers on a budget. At $1ea these bearings are still packed with features. Polished Steel Balls, “J” Type ball retainer, Grease filled, Abec 5 rating, and rubber seals sourced for higher quality.

When the racers ask for something we are here to deliver with the Momentum Series. After feedback from our team we found many racers were removing seals and cleaning the grease out of bearings and then applying oil. Well the Momentum Series comes ready to go, Abec 5 rated, stainless steel balls, "J" type ball retainer, blue rubber seals for easy identification, and pre oiled with no grease! Extremely low starting torque and free spin characteristics.
*Please note while only running oil in the bearings regular cleaning and re-oiling is required.
Application: 1/8, 1/10, 1/12 scales. On and Off road.

J&T Pro Kit
We put together a kit that myself and most of our team drivers have had the most success with. We combined our Ceramic bearings and NMB Bearings in this kit. To keep your drive line free as possible you will receive ceramic bearings, and NMB bearings will be included for the wheel bearing sizes. You get the best of both worlds! This kit won’t break the bank either!
