Was looking at the photos on neobuggy of Jorn's DEX210 for the Reedy. The rear hubs caught my eye. They look almost like AE hubs with black sharpie on them.... Anyone have any info on the hubs?

I wonder what all you need to do to run those hubs? Stock driveshafts? I have been in the market for some rear hubs and that idea caught my eye. Will be interesting to see what they are using them for.

Good chance those are Jconcepts AE hexes so he is able to run AE wheels. There is also front axles you can get to run AE front wheels.

Durango also makes them, but they are both designed for the bearing type wheels, not the hex wheels..

so i notice that my front doesnt roll enough into turns on high grip clay no matter what speed wouldnt adding a shim under the inner camber link stud allow it to roll deeper ??, my oil weight can go down about 2.5wt F/R but the springs seem good the front i can go lighter but the rebound is to slow so i would need taper pistons or dual stage any tips?
