Very happy with the originals. It is still as smooth as when I first bought the car. It'll last when you lube it correct. No reason for me to change to the ceramics for this one.
I thought I heard you saying that you run them? Sorry

I agree the original ones have been fantastic, interesting though as I do not lube the balls and plates at all and it seems you do and mine have lasted 6 months with no trouble(other than the outdrives ). Hopefully I get another 6 months

Our track at times is also very dusty, and the balls and plates have still held up.

I think you misread one of the post with someone asking if I used the ceramic THRUST BEARING on the centax... I've got the thrust bearing but have not used it yet.

Cool... Generally, those guys here who did not lube them had gritty problems in their diffs after just a few runs.

Also anyone tried or have the new belts? I have some coming in the next 2 days.

Mark...I think I told you that I had a problem with the ceramic thrust bearing going, but it was not the bearing it was the clutch (my Fault) Will be trying one this week.

D...I have some ceramic balls for the diff and I noticed you run them, was there a problem with the original balls? I have found them to be excellent(original) and I know of a few people that have not liked them(ceremaic balls). 1 guy did lube them, and 2 didnt.
SERPENT USA HAS THEM ALREADY FOR 307.97.....CHOCO

Just like those Sirio's...
They're supposed to be a high-pricing-engine killer but the fact still tells different story
