I talked with two Tamiya factory drivers that ran the Reedy here in Aliso and they both said they were able to run the whole weekend without rebuilding the diff. Compared to them rebuilding them every 3 to 4 runs! I'm sure this freed up a lot of their time to concentrate on set-up etc,etc,.
But, if you run the 16 ball diff. the ceramics are 3 times lighter then the Tamiya carbides if your trying to keep the weight down, then I believe these would be better and you can get 16 for the price of 8 carbides!
Just my 2$
