Thank you .
I believe Tower Hobbies has a complete list of all the bearings listed under the technical details of the Kraton. With that info you could just source the bearings from just about anyone who sells them. Fast Eddy's has kits so it makes it easier, but you have other options.

Is there a reason you want ceramic? I've heard they are a pain in the ass to maintain and are super expensive. I believe the Fast Eddy's kit is like $80.

@JohnSulouff FastEddyBearings offers a ceramic bearing kit, but unless you're hard pressed on using ceramic I'd recommend just getting his sealed bearing kit instead.
I would only put ceramics in the motor or in internal trans, everywhere else it is kind of a waste. For the motor I would highly recommend Hybrid stainless ceramic motor bearings. Everything else on these I would go standard rubber sealed.

I want to thank everyone for the information. I am very familiar with ceramic bearings I was not sure if any RC companies made or used ceramic bearings.
