Default Vented V2 Slipper Hub

Hello

Any one tried these? Kind of makes sense, remind me of vented brake rotors

I have the vented hub mounted now and will try it on Sat. The new pads will fit all AE offroad kits, but seems to be geared for the SC10 4x4. The extra torque of the 550 needs it.

the vented plates do make quite a large improvment on slipper consistency

It's not as much about air getting in, more about heat getting out.

OK, so where's the heat going in that enclosed air space inside that gear cover (right next to that big aluminum motor mount plate that's also a motor heat sink)

all that air inside that gear cover is going to be well above ambient temps, those holes are all show, just taking advantage of people who think vented rotors in full size cars are cool

I have drilled and slotted rotors on my car and they help A LOT!! So I don't see why this won't help.

The holes aren't for heat, they cut down on glazied pads and make the slipper more consistant throughout the run.
