Ive been working on a old TrackMagic Diablo (2000) kart and the spindle bearings are blown, I know the size is 608 but I was looking into getting some ceramic bearings for a replacement. Since the bearings have more side loading then high rpms, would it be a good idea to replace with skate rated bearings? They are not ABEC rated but are able to take a crazy amount of forces but stay under 4k rpms… Thoughts??\
Thanks For the Backup
I would recommend sticking with the $3-$5 bearings available from any of the online kart part stores that advertise on this site. A fancy bearing is not going to result in lower lap times and spindle bearings shouldn’t need replacing that often. IMO, save your money and put it towards fuel and tires.
