Default Diff Bearings

Can you tell me if the ceramic silicon nitride diff bearings are better than standard ones. I run a ball diff in the front and rear of the car, do I need to put ceramics in both diffs ?
Thanks for your help.

Hi kschu, thanks for the advice, I'll get some ordered up. I've currently got Kyosho diff grease and ball diff grease.

I wet sand the rings with 400 weight. This allows you to run the diff a little looser without slipping. Keep the diff smooth/maintained - this makes a huge difference..

If you study the rings you will see a big difference in how they wear when using ceramic balls verses steel balls. (Tungsten will do better than chrome steel but nothing is better than ceramic)
