    As far as I know, the RC8, RC8T and SC8 use the same rear hub carrier

    Yea they are the same . I looked at the manuel for the RC8.2 RTR and the part number is the same as the old rear hubs for the new ones your mentioning o_O

    I looked on Amain and it shows the old two hole plastic hubs.

    I think they are out. The new 3-holes hub has the same part number as the old 2-holes holes. Distributors must clear the old ones first I guess

    I prefer the aluminum rear hubs.... They are stronger and give me peace of mine because I know I'll not break one..... Even if I think it must take a big bad crash to break the plastic ones.

    any one having trouble with the aluminum ones seems like the set screw wears and wear on the hub happens any way not worth 80 bucks unless they give us a pin with a flat spot for the screw to sit in im angry right now !Q!@
