losi ten rear hubs necessary?

I want to hop up my truck but dont really want to spend extra cash if i dont have to. Are these rear hubs really worth changing to the aluminum ones? Also why do they onky make aluminum rear hubs and not the front?

If you're not breaking the plastic hubs you'll see no difference by running the aluminum ones.

I guess they are really durable I have not seen people had any problems with them I guess I will just worry about the things that I really need actually I was thinking about getting the aluminum shock caps but I actually see the plastic ones without any problems I'm just going to wait till things break and then I upgrade as I go. any other things that I can do from how the truck comes stock that you recommend to upgrade or change?

That sounds like a good idea no sense spending money if you don't have to. I might check at the local track and see what other people are getting for that truck. Practice is the cheapest upgrade you can ever buy

I don't think they're adjustable hinge pins...

It sounds like it's the piece that contains them to the chassis that is adjustable.

So then the chassis has 2 different points to insert the pins. Inner and outer but what are all those black inserts for?

Probably offset to adjust toe angle on the rear?
