When you replace the caster blocks to aluminum it will stop the hub carriers from breaking. I was told this, and it was true. I've had metal caster blocks for over a year and only broke one hub carrier. When I ran the stock caster blockes, I broke a hub carrier every run it seemed like. I got rid of my xx4 and have regretted it ever sence.
