There is a bit of wear over time but normally not to bad. Easy to replace once to much slop develops. I'm sure you will be able to buy them seperate eventually.

We need Aluminum hubs from either Exotek or Yaiba.

Kyosho ones are never in stock!

I believe Kyosho America lists them since they are still used for the TF5 and TF6 Touring Cars.

Since the TF6 was never imported to the US, you cannot get those parts here. Kyosho America did bring in a few of the parts, these must be some of them.

I saw the STRC ones, but I was never to fond of the finish of their products. \
