Default 1/8th buggy rear hubs, question?????

Ok i've seen this on pretty much every buggy ever made, but i fdon't know what its for??? On the rear hubs, on the back side this is like this mount looking thing protruding, what is it for? I noticed they aren't on aluminum hubs, except for Mugen. Is it for strength?

Is that the original purpose of the 'mounts' or just an application for them that came later?

No it is not for the strength it is more a plate who "scrap"the dirt away from the inside of your rearwheels. They are standard on the Team Magic buggies.
