Default The HotBodies/HPI hub moulding...

The issue with the rear hubs on the HotBodies/HPI suspension mouldings are quite widely known - that one hub ends up with about 0.5 degree less rear toe than the other when mounted.

Has anyone noticed something similar on the front knuckles? I've noticed (three years late!) that the right-front wheel always has about 1 degree more negative camber than the left-front when the top links are the same length.

Both parts are on the same sprue (#73507), so that might have something to do with it.

Have HPI/HotBodies ever revised the moulding to improve the alignments?

When that happens to me, it's the upper bulkhead being bent, or the ball stud not being threaded in straight. Check those and see if it helps
