    First, who are you? What school are you from? What competition are you aiming to attend?

    Second, you've posted this in the Competition section, which is not where this type of question should go.

    Third, why are you asking? What analysis have you done to give us something to start with? What is your gut feeling and why do you feel that?

    I second what Billy said. Just make sure your rack is always rotating at high speeds.

    Should you have any trouble sourcing magnetic bearings, might I suggest air bearings?
    Not only is air very easy to come by, it's extremely light!
