Can someone enlighten me on the failure mode of front hubs? I have like 4 extras. And as long as my wheel isn't going to fall off I might just put a used one in my spares box when I go to the track. Instead of buying new ones. Cuz they aren't cheap.

Does it get wobbly first. Or just sudden wheel loss.

I've heard it can be either. I've toasted 2 already, they gave no warning.

Rear spindles are bearingless. I'm toying with the idea of making a set of blockoff plates for all the machined surfaces to save the powdercoater some time.
