I would like to thank Steve Pak at SPDMunki Power Products for the opportunity to run the ABEC35 bearings. I have read good things about the bearings and got a chance to test them for myself. After using them to build my car and having felt the true smoothness of the bearings I was very pleased. The next step for me was if they could handle the durability test and they passed with flying colors. I have been searching for months now for quality bearings and ABEC35 are definitely the ones. I can’t wait to show these great bearings at the races to come. These ABEC35 Bearings Rock.
