Default hubs... ?crt

I am not sure if the mugen ones are compatible but I hear the dace ones are pretty cool.... . I did not crack any wheels yet....

Why would one want to change to mugen hubs? Thats a first for me hearing that.... Also I maybe have about 2 gallons on my crt and its still good. Although if you are talking about the buggy, still have yet to drive mine... . I will take it out next week.

Ive seen them on one car so far and heard about a few other over here in OZ that are using them. From what I saw they tend to take a bit more slop out of the rear end as the standard plastic ones tend to wear reasonably quickly.

I think there might be some confusion here about hubs. When i think about hubs i think th ething that the wheel bolts to. I think some other people are thinking the same. What he meant by hub is the rear hub carrier or upright. Mugen makes some nice aluminum ones.

There were a handful of the new kits released last week to some of the upper hobby shops. These went quick and there are none left. I know for sure that A-Main hobbies & Nirtohouse had some last week or two. They are said they might have more this week.

Hope this helps
