I'm not saying they are a bad investment, I'm saying they are way overpriced, dont have the strength of the stock ones, and wouldn't make a noticiable difference at all in a micro...

Um I have some ceramic rear diff balls for my rear HPI ball diff and should I use ceramic greese with those? Right now I'm using silicon greese by Associated.

The Associated grease should be fine, that's what I use on my ceramic diff balls, and it is extremely smooth.

If you already know that it's like cream then why are you asking if you should use grease on the balls? I'm kinda nit-picky today

Because ceramic greese and ceramic diff balls. See I was wondering if the 2 where suppose to go together, but only for the diff balls and not the ceramic bearings.

Um what type of oil should I use for my stock HPI bearings?

I got one other question that somebody might be able to answer...

Anybody got any good idea's as to what greese I should use in my Front One-Way? I am currently using Team Associated Silicon Greese which works fine.

Just trying to see what a One-Way should really run on, thin or thicker greese for an All-around course setup.
