ummmmm I dont use them. the stock ones have done very well for me. I use excel hubs on my speedway pal car but that is for carpet running to fit the foams. but to each there own

as with any car you will break if you HIT hard. but its much cheaper to replace the palstic then bend the aluminum and replace it. I like the stock ones my self you can get the 2 deg rear hubs as a option

Thats true, I dont think I'll have a huge problem with broken parts, once I get in a groove I can usually keep it and drive clean. It is usually pretty hard to bend an aluminum piece though, never done it in the past.

I was planning on getting one of the SD Black Carbon editions from RainbowTen, but with the web special, I really dont think I'm going to spend the cash on it unless I just cant get the web to run right for some reason.
