They make a ceramic bearing set with those shields as well, very smooth, long lasting bearings...

The only real trade off is the extra weight of them on the drive train. You might see a slight loss of acceleration but you also get more of a fly wheel effect too. But there isnt really any bad thing that I can see other then the weight factor.....they are heavy. And I think you get a tad bit more off power steering too with the fly wheel effect not like a 1 way but more so then with a plastic diff.

Would you guys be interested in graphite front and rear bumpers for the XXX-S with droop screw holes that didn't flex like the kit ones?

You know, those funnly little things that as you adjust them, you can see the plastic bumper flex and bend That's the one and only thing I mis about a TC3. If you could come out with a nice rigid way to do the droop screws, I'd be very interested.

I am working on getting some made. I sent a set of the plastic ones out to the graphite guy this week and if they work, I may try to sell these. Just wondered if there was any interest to replace the flex-o-matics or not
