Default Do I need to replace these??

Ok so I'm running at Road Atlanta this weekend. I need to know if these things in the pictures need to be replaced before hitting the track. Thanks for the help! Also any idea what would cause this?

You should get a proctologist to look at your thingies.

Otherwise tell us what we're looking at, or more importantly what you think is wrong in those pictures.

Yes, replace all the things!

Seriously though, we need more info... All I see are some wheel bearings.

In the first picture I don't know what it's called. It looks like a cover. It seems to be bent.

Also that hub nut? Looks like it may be bent also. I'll get better pictures in the morning

The cover is bent because someone pried it off, and wasn't careful. The nut is bent because it's supposed to be. See that notch? Bending it into that locks the nut on.

If that's the worst of your problems, consider yourself lucky. No, you don't need to replace either one.

Make sure the other side looks the same otherwise the car might pull to one side or the other.
