Default Cyclone S C-Hubs and ashphalt racing

Well finally (not on purpose) I broke my right front C-hub today, it looks like everything else is good

now I need to find a set of front hubs for my car, what are all your opinions on new ones

Aluminum ??
Carbon Graphite ??

what should I replace mine with and where can I get them from?


On another note I plan on doing some outdoor ashphalt racing this year and I am wondering what a good setup would be for that, including parts I may need to replace

Mike

The cyclone S C-hubs are made from eggshells. Get the C hub set from the HPI Pro 4 (same as Cyclone). part number is HPI 73518 (for 4 degrees).

Our local track runs a Cyclone S spec class and the only upgrade allowed is the Pro 4 C-hubs.
