Default new hubs for brushless xxxt rtr?

I broke my right rear hub today and I was wondering what I should replace it with, the stock hubs or MF2 hubs or upgrade the driveshafts and install the the cr aluminum hubs? This is my first truck, I want to start racing so it will really only be run on the local track.

just replace it with xxxt rear hubs
mf2 hubs can be used as a last resort
and the cr conversion would cost you $140 after you buy everything
just for the hubs bearings and drive shafts

Clint is right.

Converting to the CR setup would be pricey. Plus, any rear tires you have now would not fit the Quick Change axle.

Unless your determined to go the CR direction, I'd stick to the XXX-T hub.

I have a xxxt cr I put the mf2 hubs on mine because I kept breaking titanium ball studs off in the hubs.

Basicly with the mf2 hubs you can run either the standard rims which most likely you already have or the new quick change type wheels with a conversion piece from losi...they won't be a quick change because they will be held on with a nut but it allows you to use those rims and the hubs are 3.50 instead of 40.00 or whatever the new ones are these days.
