Ordinarily it is with the front hubs most have problems removing. I have never encountered a problem with the rear hubs. I never expected to do so poorly on carpet, but then it was a year since I was last on carpet. I broke my first C-hub a-arm. Oddly enough the break did not occur any where near the drilled holes.

Default Roll Out

I recently have gotten back into the electric game from nitro and I can not get a clear answer on how to figure roll out and what kind of a number to shoot for. I keeping hearing 30 or 90 depending on who I am talking to. I run carpet w/ foams and would like to deal with metric. Thanks, Jason

I've had no problem with the fronts since I changed to spring steel, and no problems with the original rears at all. Altho I did have to use a 1mm spacer inside the wheel hub with one particular set of wheels as the spring steel are slightly thinner.

Yea the spring steel is the way to go. The price is a different story. I wonder if the T1R will have the aluminum hub? Most likely.

Spring Steel hubs are worth every cent.

It is NOT the T1R....it is effectively an Evo2 with the addition of the plastic C hub conversion included in the package. It is available everywhere in Hong Kong.
