I have found the T3 11 to be a great car. I think the front spool as helped my driving a lot. The way a spool works means I need to power it through the corners.
I had a Yokomo BD before the T3 11.

Definitely - and with all diffs I have had this issue, with silicon nitride/ceramic if it has slipped a few times I found a little black dust mixed in with the lube. I'm sure it is material from the balls.

In a way it doesn't make sense because the steel plate is softer than ceramic but a change to new balls every now and then seems to keep everything dead smooth. I tried also fitting an old set of ceramic balls and the diff was notchy again so I'm convinced that was the issue.

I'll order up some new diff plates and balls in the week. Have even tried a schumacher thrust bearing. Will buy some schumacher diff plates, see if they fit into the xray.

That's what you want to do from this point forward.

But the new membranes and inserts give any improvement on alu shocks?

I just assembled the alu shocks with stock high profile membrane and inserts and they are really smooth and works well.

Depends on how wide your running your car, if your narrow 52 will be tight.

Low membranes allow you to have basically dead shocks. The high profile ones are too tall and make the piston bounce off of them giving you some unneeded rebound.

Only thing I don't like about the low profile bladders is that they are a little more fragile compared to the old ones.
