the alloy hubs will withstand reasonable amounts of impact, but another part in the suspension that isnt alloy will suffer for example the suspension arm.

But for the answer you are after yes it will survive the majority of the crashes without bending until you hit a wall at full speed with a high powered motor.

okay
they will fit your car
they will bend
they will look nice
they are heavier
they will mark up when damaged
they will not make you go quicker though

Not quite that simple. Altough you can get the unit to fit the gear mesh is not optimal. Sounds loud.

I had fitted the wrong bearings before, still Tamiya but apparently a little wider. Changed to Evo V bearings and now there´s room for spacing the gear mesh.

Yes. Best thing, take some of the axle shims, and place them between the spacers and bell crank to take up the slop.

I've tested my Evo V last weekend, the car went very well with (almost) the standard setup. Had some small problems with the ball cups (they went loose), but after 2 batteries my front bevel was already destroyed, maybe after a hit.. or I just shimmed it not good enough. But I'm already faster with this car then my Mission 2, i really like this car
