Not a gimmick really. The new cross pins sit in an insert that slides into the slot where the pin usually just rides. So instead of it riding on plastic it rides on the insert itself. So less wear on the case.

Do the plastic cases wear out on the ae cars? They had that issues I remember on the losi 8 1.0, but since then they made the plastic harder and no issues with the pins digging into case. Losi did come out with similar cross pin design with aluminum inserts but just ended making the plastic harder and did away with inserts.

They did wear pretty bad. The newer cases (About 6 months) are harder Plastic.

I see ongaro at the one man on race was running mugen rear hubs on his car. Is this for durability purposes or is their a performance enhancement?

Allows for lower axle height compared to the AE hub.

The axle height on the mugen hub is 0.5mm higher than the AE hub. This applies to both upper and lower positions.

The mugen hub will provide more grip if what was stated is true

What do you guys prefer for chassis braces. Kit comes with long braces. We are running on what start out as high grip clay indoor then as the day goes on we are running outdoor tires.

Typically I will always use the short front brace. For me, the short brace makes the front end feel a little less direct to steering input. A little more comfortable for my nervous driving

When the traction is pretty high or the track is super bumpy/blown out, I run the long rear brace. The short one is good for slicker/dusty conditions.
