Out of all of our TLR 8 2.0 and 3.0 kits we have never needed aluminum rear hubs. Only broke 2 spindles total on multiple 3.0 kits. Never needed aluminum carriers either. Plastic is lighter and plenty strong. Bent few front inner hinge pins but still finished. Tyler isn't easy I his cars either and I'm very happy with how they hold up.

Thanks for the tips Randy! I bought my 2.0 and it already had all aluminum, I've never broken anything on the car except a shock mount from a crash. I'll just stay plastic.

Junk? I dunno bout all that....both my TLR kits have been super solid and durable....other than they get a little loose after a few gallons, I think the cars are flat killer!! Love my 3.0 and 3.0T

When you type out and post a post like the above, most people aren't going to be so welcoming. It's like pounding on someone's front door instead of knocking, then being offered they don't invite you in for tea...

Be nice and polite with people on here, and I've found they always return it in kind favor.

Yeah on our 2.0's we ran the inclined front end parts which were aluminum though. Not sure if they made those parts in plastic back then or not. Because of the weird right front spindle issue that some had and some didn't, I would suggest getting the aluminum spindles, and the aluminum servo saver top. Other than that, cars are really bullet proof. Don't worry about car getting loose fitting!! Our cars are never the best until they have a ton of time in them and are loosened up.

Well tell me if you have heard of this one or even seen it before. I took my 3.0 e buggy to our practice night. One of the youngsters started started doing donuts on our straightaway and I hit him full wick with my buggy. I broke (not bent) one of my front hinge pins and didn't break the arm. Don't tell me Losi builds crappy stuff.
