I think the explanation on the hb website explains it sufficiently:

It is the same as using the cup that was around the old pom outdrives just in cool purple and no sanding required (at least I assume they made sufficient clearance)

When using this cover, grub screw not needed to hold axle pin in ... this reduces binding, make axle operation very smooth

"at least I assume they made sufficient clearance" - I was just trying to imagine how this would look as I wondered about the clearance.

I have ordered a set anyway so will see how they go... yep they are available in the UK.

Thinking of getting aTCX, my question is are the c hubs, arms and knuckles still the weak point? Thanks in advance.

Yes.

For me personally, knuckles are the bane of my TCX. It seems that if I touch a board, I break. However, once I ground down the axles so they didn't protrude past the wheel nuts, my breakage rate went way down.

I've also used x-ray knuckles - they seem to be a bit more robust.

I have also broken my share of arms. Not very many c-hubs tho.

Pro 4 arms for me to. There way less brittle. Also running a Roche spool and Tamiya 46mm steel front drive shafts.
Car is very robust now
