Are the repair bearings with two seals any good for endurance racing? I've run stock bearings and repair bearings with one seal with some success. We all know it's more axel wear. We can get 40 hours out of a set of axels. At the end of the day the axel cost as much as a tire that only last 14 hours.
Back to the sealed repair bearings. Containing it's own grease there is no chance of oil starvation. Comparing them with from wheels bearings that last along time with repacking every 14 hours. Any thoughts?
Thanks

I've seen those and even used them on the street, but as inexpensive as most axles are, I replaced the axles. I've had stock bearings go south in 20K miles, some lasted forever... I guess the secret is to try and find some non china built bearings.. it's not easy BTW.
