Default C Hub

I broke my 'c'hub twice today, its not during high speed impact but only touched the board lightly during slow speed left corner.I m really surprise how fragile this thing is, it cost me 2 heats today. I thought I read somewhere on this thread about using TA05 IFS normal plastic 'c'hub is a bit durable. Is this the one? TA05IFS C HUB

If it is how come it says 2deg caster? Is there any IFS 'c'hub that is 4deg? I also want to know if any of you guys have tried different car brand 'c'hub with 416, like Kyosho's TF5 or Xrays' T2?....Thats the pther brand that available locally in my country other than Tamiya coz my LHS is running out of 416 carbon composite 'c'hub...and tommorrow is the final race day.

That's strange, I would say this car is one of the most durable available. I have raced for months with it and not broken a single part , and with some crazy crashes. The Team Magics, Cyclones, and TC5 break like crazy on my track. Are you running a servo saver?

This is what your after....

You will struggle to break these, believe me, they are a LOT more durable than the standard carbon versions, and also yield a little more steering due to being softer.

If your really struggling, the 415 ones can also fit, you'll need the 415 style king pins as well though.

Hrmm I'm still having wear issues with the rear diff halve outdrives. Am I just being too slack replacing the plastic blades or is there something more I can do to stop the drive pins denting the outdrives?

Your rear diff halves should never wear, once the blades start getting slop in them just replace them, much cheaper and easier than replacing the outdrives...
