Is there a part number for 4 degree castor blocks and are they marked?

I don't think vbc makes 4 degree caster blocks and I don't see any info on them being 4 degrees or 2 degrees. I just was told that this weekend because of a problem I was having with my D07 that I needed 4 degree caster blocks. I have new blocks silver and the gold and nothing on them inddicates what degree they are 4 or 2 degree. So I take it they must only make them 2 degrees.

All of the plastic c-hubs are 4 degrees, and the aluminum ones are 2 degrees, no? I swap between v2, silver, gold, and aluminum c-hubs, and all of the plastic ones have the same caster and the aluminum ones have less caster.

Xray hubs will fit but i believe you need to shave a little from what i remember.
Where are people getting their parts from in the states, now that vbc usa is no more

vbcracing.com is the website that they merged that and the usa website together..

If you want to order from a Canadian site I would recommend gripworksrc.com.. He is top notch to deal with.

Will not drop right in.The sleeves will not interchange between the 2 manufactures either. VBC's hubs are all 4* except for the optional aluminums as already said by others.
