has anybody tried any other manufacturers wheel hubs/nuts for the mugen? Over the past 3 years with (2 years Prospec, 1 year so far w/R) i have probably gone through 3 sets (12 total) of hubs due to the nuts' threads getting f'd up due to various "things"... and had to use brute force and GM penetrating oil just to back the nut off (while destroying both the hub and nut).

I would not be adverse to Losi either (LOL) if they fit

Thanks imaxx...i notice you have a washer behind the hub...do they not have the "step" that the stockers have? or are you taking up some slop....

Gregory measure you droop by shock length

should be 104mm in front and 128.5 in the rear

measure from the top screw to the bottom screw (center to center)

make sense?

ride height: bones level in front and bones slightly above level in the rear
