Wow no wear and no grease. That's impressive. Is it expensive?

I'm trying to figure out pricing right now.
Thinking $10-$15 per diff.. 4 spider gears, 2 bevels, 2 outdrives, 1 ring, 1 pinion.

I have been using that brand for a while.
They seem to have the most diverse product range to encompass our needs.
Heat Insulation, Heat Dispersion and Lubricty.

Not to take this thread too of topic, but have you tried coating a chassis? or do they flex too much.

I honestly see real potential in your coating scheme with the center diff spur and clutch pinion. they don't get the greasy love like the ring & pinions do and get the wear to show it.

I build chassis for Mugen cars. This is my chassis with the Ceramic Coating.

I'll shoot a pic of one tonight.

The biggest advantage is not the bottom, but the heat dissipation and ease of clean up.

That stuff looks sweet but looks like a pain in the arse to apply unless your doing it a lot. Either way it's awesome!! Perhaps you could start a service where racers send you parts for your professional application??
