i am making some custom weighted fronts, and need a source for tjet hubs in quantity (enough for 15-20 cars). stock hubs ok, but if anyone knows a source for hubs that are thinner than stock that would be great too

thanks

Yea they are the best hubs when running stock TJETS however they are not thinner infact they have a very slight bubble spacer built into them so you can actually run them a hair wider track than stock They are though the truest of all the stock replacement hubs. Model Motoring also sells stock wheels. As for thinner you need to find a source for Vibrator Hubs they are thinner or look at MEVs wheels. After that JW or RTHO both make nice dual flange hubs. JW makes a very nice weighted front for skinny width TJETS check with him he will give you a good price on 15 -20 sets

thanks for the tips

i ordered the reporduction hubs from ebay. with those hubs, drill rods for axles, ground and trued stock tires, and 1/16 brass wheel collars from RC planes as weights, my cost per independent weighted front end is less than $2. these are just for runners.
