I am not sure of this term but i know they are rubber sealed and they keep the dirt out and they are better than stock on performance. read a review here

I have been running them for almost a year and had zero problems with them. Granted, I do not do any big jumps but for normal use (dirt and normal jumps) they have worked for me.

All maintenance!

Two reason why they are. 1) lack of maintaining them, or 2) not right for the application, such as speed or what not.

Maintenance for my bearings? What exactly am I suppose to do, pull the bearings and give them a kiss for good luck? Besides, I doubt it’s the case because I've had them blow out pretty quick. The ceramic bearings I got form my LHS already have more use on them then I ever put on those duratrax bearings and they are still working perfect. I was just hoping to find some good ceramic bearings that were affordable since they seem to work so well.

I've been away for better than a year, BUT Mike had recommended the Team Losi tire glue to me "way back when." Also, I know Boca Bearings is an option, but not the cheapest. HTH, Mike

Best tire glue IMHO is Racers Edge Fusion Tire Glue. Hands down the best stuff I have ever used! Only down side is - The remaining glue does not last long after you open it. It actually fuses the Tire and Wheel together.
