Is TOP will release new left hub?
I like the counterbalance, but don't like it clamp lug.
The main problem is it can't get enough clamping force for my 3.5T.
And it will wear axle.

Just had a run with the car and its hooked. Only whinged is the optional front axles (http://rcmarket.com.hk/product_info....ducts_id=11110) bends so easily. Anyone here tried another brand front axle that fits directly to the Top hubs

The AE ones bolt right in. The ones with the small screw in the back end of them.

Hi

I use the one from BMI , fits right on , and its easy to make the front a little wider by screwing it out and place a shim between the axle and the hub/knuckle

Some are using the CRC hub, and I have machined the stock hub to take the woble out of them. However ....... rumor is that a new hub is in the works.

Thanks Mark
We are testing the new hub now. So far it works perfectly. If all goes well it should be available in a few weeks. Can't show a pic yet but here's a spy shot of something else:

Looks good, but wouldnt it be better to have the ESC on the other side to make the wiring cleaner, with less binding?
