Personally I love this upgrade.....Any time you can free up your drivetrain your just adding some ponies to the car. Just my 2 cents..if you dont mind spending the few extra bucks I think its worth it..www.acerracing.com
very resonable

Ive had mine in now for about 4 months...just finished running at the Glc and they are still fine....a lot has to do with maintenance you must periodically clean them thoroughly to get the best results I could not tell you if they would last longer....if its not performance your looking for then ceramics is most likely not for you.. you might as well purchase bearings at www.avidrc.com $1 per bearing.....cheap enough to replace often..hope this helps

Aren't they lighter as well? I remember getting ceramic diff balls for my 710. I thought they forgot to put the balls in the bag... it was so light I couldn't tell they were in there.

Default Hex Pins

Here is a question for anybody that is using aftermarket wheel hexes. What are you using for the pin? I installed a set of Skyline hexes and the stock pins are very short. I am afraid they will slide to one side and the hex might rotate.

Thanks
