The zero degree hubs are the ones most used. Benefits? Just more durability.. They have the larger bearing on one side and I have no idea why that would make things better... No reason to buy them if what you have is working for you though.. If you want to try them out just wait until the ones your have break

If you don't want to change the toe the can use B44 rear hubs and get the benefits of the larger outer bearing without paying for the aluminium hubs. Rear hubs rarely if ever break.

Just make sure you get all the right parts, as in the B44 crush sleeve.

Default Yes they are worth it.

It would not be the first upgrade I would make... but they are worth it.

1. The larger outter bearing holds up much better as the larger Short Course wheels put alot of stress on the outter bearing and the stock on in the plastic hubs does not last long under these conditions.

2. Having the aluminum hubs are still and help you suspension work better and flex less.

3. Having the tunability of changing the upper section for more adustment holes is great if you find yourself changing tracks and tuning alot for different conditions.

Are they spendy... Yes but I feel they are worth the investment.

I ran 1.5 degree on my sc10 and run .5 on the b4.

With the new toe adjustment blocks I would run b44 hubs and not use the aluminum, that's just me.

I think if your racing on a track, getting proper tires would be the first thing to do. Find some setup sheets online and mess around with some suspension settings to find what works with your style of racing. After that, get .5 or 1 degree hubs. I think this was one of the best handling mods I did because it eliminated spinning out when powering through turns. Gear it correctly and youll have a very competitive race truck for not a lot of money. If your still not satisfied, get a mamba 4600 sidewinder combo for $100 and youll have more torque and top end then youll ever want or need.

Good luck and have fun
