Compatible Aluminum Hubs, Redcat Earthquake 3.5
 
I completely destroyed a hub on my earthquake 3.5. Are there any compatible Aluminum hubs? It doesn't appear to be a standard 12mm, for which I have extra for my Stampede. Any help would be appreciated.

These are the parts for the upgraded Alum. pieces you would want.


MPO-04

MPO-02

MPO-03

Its going to cost you a pretty penny, but well worth it.  just be careful or consider getting different screws.  The stock ones might snap, some better steel ones or ti might be better.

They're standard 12mm hexes. You can get them from any hobby shop.

They are not standard. They are flanged and the spindle is larger. I have standard Traxxas 12mm hubs from my Stampede and the whole in them that is for the spindle is too small to fit the Earthquake.

Yes, hexes are cheap. $3-$4 usually for 4. Stick with the plastic. They're cheap, easy to replace, and won't strip out your more expensive wheels. Aluminum is not always better, in fact a lot of parts are better off in plastic form. Plastic will flex. Aluminum will bend. There are certain things that benefit from aluminum, just make sure you want it metal for a reason.

Looks like these would work, even though they dont have the flange on them like the stock plastic ones. http://www.ebay.com/itm/A487-HSP-021...item43b08d2430 As you can see in the picture on ebay the hub is not the same size all the way through. There is also this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/blue-aluminu...item20b989e1f1
