AWD Bearing kit

I finally broke down and bought the last AWD Mini-z that my local hobby store had. These things are just too cool to pass up. I've ordered quite a bit of parts through ebay, but when it comes to the various bearing kits I've seen (Atomic, JPL, 3 Racing), how do these $10 off-brands compare to the $30 Kyosho brand bearing kit?

I have the Kyosho bearing kit for the ma-01 and they are silky smooth. I also have a car with x-mods bearings. I have to say though that the K's were very impressive.

With the $10 bearings and diff bearings, use some electric motor spray and flush out the factory oil and grease from them and install them dry.

You'll notice the difference in that there is less resistance and the awd rolls a lot further when the throttle is off.

I just got a set of the PN Racing ball bearings. Pretty darned good. I didn't blow out the grease or anything, just ran them stock. Will play with them more later. Can't wait to try the MZR bearings.
