Using both alloy hub & camber mount is the stiffest.
Plastic hub & camber mount has more flex & has extra grip.



A combination like alloy hub & Hard plastic camber mount is my recommendation to start with for good traction.
Myself using the the hub with numbers facing towards the shocks & the rear inside camber hole with 3mm shim under the stud.

The main advantage to using the alloy hub is the ability to adjust the camber stud up or down depending on traction conditions.

GTI

Don't need alloy hubs , the plastic is a awesome piece.
Still, my black alloy hubs stay on my ride.


Tip: When using alloy hubs do not use the 6mm camber stud on the plastic hub.
Move up to the 8mm stud for max strength.
When tighting the set screw for suspension pin don't snug it down real tight as it can make the hub blind.

For stock racing, I'm using a 72 benefit of running a 69 would be moving the motor back a bit, is it noticeable?

Sorry, that could have come off that way. Basically, I don't like it because you have to be careful which hole you put your ballstud in because the stock ballstud can thread into the bearing carriers and wreck them. It offers no performance advantage, it's just bling that is more difficult to use than the stock part.

#1
Seen quite a few plastic hubs break.
#2
Collected three blue tabs off the track so far, have you priced those tabs ?

#3

You use caution in the forward inside stud hole, rest are no big.

#4
Your stuck with a stud that's lower then what the fast guys R using..

#5
You will never see a alloy hub break from a hard landing.

Just bling ? O really now....ha !

I don't see a real benefit from running the new alum. hubs, that could change but so far have not seen any set ups and explanations on benefits that make them a purchase. They do look really cool though.

Well you probally have to drive it a little slower because yhere is not that much weight down low to keep the car planted like with the aluminum chassis
