That looks like the C-hub and knuckle off an Mi4CXL.

HappyHippo, using the different c-hubs does what for the car? Did you do this just to get rid of slop in the front?

I run indoors on carpet and I'm running 1k in the rear diff. I've played with multiple top deck variations but have gone back to running just the rear stock mount. I've tried the Jet Hobbies aluminum mounts also but I'm most comfortable with the stock rear mount only.

In response;

1) the optional rear hub plates can help with freeing the car up on tighter tracks. I tend to flick between the two groove on a track with tight hairpins, and the kit plates on a track that is more flowing. On a flowing open track, the two groove can make the car over rotate on exit a little, but does help with initial stability too. Honestly, best thing to do (as they aren't expensive) is try them. The two groove moves the outer rear link in towards the car centre 2mm, and the one groove 1mm, so shorter links than the kit plates. One good thing is that one full turn of the camber link tie rod equates to 1mm... So changing the plates is pretty quick and painless, and don't even need to use gauges (I have checked this against gauges mind)

2) I assume you mean the top deck mounts that go against the shock towers? If so, the aluminium mounts are a little stronger and stiffer, and this is more so in higher ambient temperatures, as the plastic mounts soften in heat. They also do away with any need for lock nuts, as the alu mounts are all threaded.

3) For modified, I tend to use 2000 or 3000 oil. I do have a diff with 4k ready to go. I tend to find that a thicker rear oil really helps with on power steering, although needs a better trigger finger in mod. Lower than 2k, and the car tends to diff out, IMO.

HiH
