Does anyone know of any stronger front hub carriers and front yokes? They just seen so weak even tho the are carbon reinforced. Any help would be appreciated.

Tamiya #51293 is considered the most durable. It is a softer plastic.

Hit the breaks on the Exotek hub carriers. They bend quite easily, been there and done that.  Question, what are you using the car for?  Racing? or just messing about? 

C Hubs are the weak point of very major brand of RC cars.  Tamiya is no exception.  The TRF416 through TRF419 have suffered this fate.  Solutions are as follows

1. Install X Ray Foam Bumper - 301224.  This thing is a like a battle ram and when you nick a corner it doesn't flex back and break C Hub

2. Avoid the TRF418 C Hubs as they are more prone to breaking than the older version

3. If you are using DCJ axles, trim the Steering knuckle with an exacto knife

4. Upgrade to the TRF420 arms -

Last solution is your best bet, I am eventually heading this direction myself.... I just have too much stock of the older suspension arms.
