This kit was developed with the assistance of our Team Drivers. We found that Ceramic wheel bearings do not last as long as steel bearings, due to the hardness of ceramic balls and the conditions that wheel bearings endure, premature wear of the steel rings was found to be common in comparison to our V2 Premium Steel Bearings. Another factor is that wheel bearings generally spin 4 times slower than the driveline (dependant on gear ratio’s), Ceramic bearings are most advantageous at higher speeds, therefore there is less advantage to using them in the wheels. This was the result for both onroad and offroad cars across different platforms, offroad cars are more harsh on wheel bearings in terms of the impacts they face when landing jumps and riding through rough surfaces, onroad cars endure less bumps but more high speed cornering which places high loads on the balls and races, in all cases we found that ceramic bearings would prematurely wear compared to V2 Premium steel bearings when used in the wheels. Ceramic Bearings perform very well in spur gears and diffs with no performance or longevity issues. Another advantage, the V2C Kit is cheaper than a full ceramic kit.

 

Plaig Bearings are a stronger, more reliable bearing with greater heat resistance and superior life to the standard factory bearings.
