Get these, too!
. On my wish list, someday...
For the last three* years I have been using ceramic* wheel bearings in my cars with amazing results, I was keeping it under my hat for the most part just to hold that extra edge but im getting old and don't need to keep breaking records and chasing fast times.
Used by Nascar, Indy, Rally teams and Top fuel tems for years.
The ceramic ball bearing hubs I use have 1/10th the friction of a steel ball, 60% lighter, *they are 100% round grade 5 Silicon Nitrate, we use special ultra low friction grease, micro polished races. Ceramic bearings will far outlast the factory steel units as they produce nearly no heat or friction, the car WILL pick up MPH and ET at the dragstrip, run more consistant and faster laps on the road course and yield better fuel economy eventually paying for themselves.
Evo's go through wheel bearings rather fast, why not spend a little extra $$ and have a set that will outlast the car and give you an edge everytime you drive the car.
*2003-2006 Mitsubishi Evolutions:
