I have asked this before also without an answer. Inquiring minds want to know!

Default me too

I would like to know the answer to that one also...
I ended up using the Yokomo blue quick wheel hubs...but they leave a little side to side play...the Corally drop right in tight...but way too fragile...the Yok's are pretty much indestructible...and only 9 bucks a pair.

Yea, add me to that list too. The wheel hexes could absolutely stand some attention, especially the thin ones, they're fragile as hell.

Hey, someone remind me, what's the advantage of the narrow rear hubs? Do you run normal hexes with those to make width?

I thought there were some favorable comments about the very expensive HPI hubs a few months ago.

The HPI ones are too narrow in the front even with shims for some rims (like the take-off ones).

Sorry to nit-pick, but are we talking hubs or hexes? I'll try to remember to borrow someones T2 hexes at the track today and see if they fit.

I was talking about both. The hexes are fragile, especially the narrow hexes.

I was also wondering about the new narrow rear hubs, and why people are using them. I believe if you use them, you can run the wide hexes in the rear which are more durable.
