Thanks in advance.
You can swap them left to right, so they have 2 sets of markings depending on which way around you have them

I'm selling my 416x, it only has a few days of carpet racing and testing. The car is in near perfect condition. Plus about $150 in spares! Great deal on an almost new car. Feel free to make me an offer.

nearly brand new Tamiya 416x for sale! free shipping

Mini-Dub's car is a great car, very few runs. I would seriously consider this deal.

Steve will even throw in a cheeseberger to sweeten the deal.

Seriously, Weylin knows how to put his stuff together and takes care of his stuff. I think it's only been run on carpet.

I've been running into issues were I've been repeatedly been breaking "C" hub at the bottom. is there any trick that will prevent this from happening(other than driving better), and is there any recommendations on aluminum aftermarket replacements?

Thanks in advance.

You can use the one from TA05 IFS, its the same thing, its just made of different material, which is flexy. It wont break as the carbon composite one. Its part no is #51293.

Have you tried the plastic TA-05 hubs? I switched to those and they seem to hold up well.

Like others said, the flexible plastic pieces from the TA05 hold up really well. They'll yield a bit more steering, too, though I think they're a little inconsistent. I use the stock suspension pieces with a Parma T2 bumper, and aluminum c-hubs from square. That seems to be the bulletproof combination for the front end. Well, 46mm steel bones up front, too.

Where did you purchase the Square parts from? Hopefully an online retailer.

Thanks
