Actually I always wondered about these.

Are the retrofriction or index? And can they run 8 speed in index mode?

Index in 8 speed beautifully, in fact with an SRP 10 tooth cog add on I ran them as 9 speed before shimano had thought of it! Great little device, replaces your lockring, bit of respacing and redishing and hey presto a 9 speed cassette with 8 speed spacing!
