Default RC8Be Steering Hubs

I need to get new steering blocks on the RC8 because the one I currently have is stripped. (ASC89028) I want to upgrade to the factory team aluminum ones, but there are two different sets. Part (ASC89566) and (ASC89380). Part ASC89380 is the one that comes with the RC8.2e factory team kit, but costs more. What is the difference between these two parts? Which one is better? Will they both fit ASC89558.
Thanks

The ASC89566 steering block is a part of the Vertical Steering block kit and needs the Vertical caster block and the bushing set. The set costs about $140. The ASC89380 is the stock FT part that came with the RC8.2 buggies. The Vertical steering block will not fit the ASC89558. But the FT team blocks will fit.

Both are great upgrades but are not needed. Unless you want to convert your RC8 to Rc8.2 than go for it, other wise save your money and just replace the stripped cast steering block with stock one.

cheers,

Agreed with the above. I actually have a set of the cast ones brand new in package if you're interested just shoot me a PM.
