Thanks for the great, thorough write up, as usual.   Would like to point out King hubs can be serviced 99% with no special tools.  One hex key only.   The full tear down needs done only every few years at most, at least in my case.  I've 4 king rear hubs, most over ten years old, and one 15+ years on my main trail bike.  One is a SS hub.  Never had a bearing or any other failure.  Never had one second of downtime due to a king hub issue.  And climbing trialsy tech in nasty conditions is how I spend most of my time riding.  As for drag... Ride the bike enough and it will be a non-issue.
