Had a set of 440 hubs that I upgraded did t have them a long time but they saw bad weather and some hard riding.
The guy that has them now has been beating g on them for 2+ years now and no maintenance issues that ive heard of yet the 36 star is still going strong...
There's plenty of discussion about it. I think the key is to make sure the springs push the ratchets together properly, and are lubricated very lightly. I'd personally either use a very light film of the genuine DT product, or just a thick oil and re-lube a little more often - given how easy it is to do.
The chromed steel on the current 18T and 36T ratchets is very hard and the mode of failure won't be from wear / lack of lubrication, but rather from skipping due to using grease that's too sticky. Keep it clean and lightly lubed and I think you'll be good.
