    Default EOI - CNC AE86 Hubs in standard size and +10mm track

    Hi,

    I have the opportunity to have some AE86 hubs CNC Machined from scratch at a good price.

    I am currently having a pair made for myself and wanting to know if there is enough interest to have more produced.

    There will be two types available, a standard copy of a factory hub OR one that will give 10mm track per side! This means you will have 20mm extra track total before and control arm, spacers or wheels fitted.

    Be aware, you cannot take this 10mm off if you want, its part of the hub.

    All hubs will suit standard AE86 wheel bearing kits, and I am able to supply new wheel bearing kits with hubs.

    These Hubs are made LOCALLY in SOUTH AUSTRALIA, by a large CNC company that make other CNC Motorsport items and supply items to companys such as MAD DAT.

    The price for two (2) hubs (standard or +10mm) with no studs or bearings will be approx $300 DELIVERED to your door. (Including postage)

    Wheel bearing kits will be $30 for both sides (If required)

    Sourcing studs can be left to you depending on length you wish.

    A deposit of 30% will be required before they will be produced, and production time will take 3 weeks.

    Please post interest here. If we get 10 or more people i will DEFINITELY give the go ahead......any less and we might do a one of run of them.

    (I have Nicks permission for this thread)

    Regards

    Huw

    Many moons ago I thought about machining up some alloy hubs, after talking to a V8 supercar fabricator I decided against it, he shed some interesting light on the cons of alloy hubs on the road.

    lol @ zero actual info to back up negative comment.

    I noticed Group 4 fabrication does this also, out of the UK, but about 180 pounds per hub in alloy.

    Plus freight.

    If youre replacing them every couple of hundred hours theyre probably great.

    Y would you replace them every hundred hours?
    If you use a hi grade alloy it will be fine.
    Aircraft wings and hi load components are made oh hi temper alloys and tested to over 120,000 hrs without fault .
    So saying they need to be replaced every couple hundred hours would not be true.
    Also these alloys experience and carry much higher loads then a 1000kg car.

    I don't know, perhaps the same reason F1 teams who can afford alloy wheel nuts replace them every 2 races and the teams on a budget run steel wheel nuts. Aluminium is awesome at jobs like aeroplane wings. I just think undercarriages are a little different. Thought I saw a fair bit of steel last time I looked at a planes undercarriage too.

    My comment related to the fact that I am sure V8SC teams replace theirs every couple of hundred hours. When you want a road car to do 10s of thousands of hours in a public space, it's a complete different proposition.

    Landing gear is a different kettle of fish, it needs to withstand forces across many axis, your run of the mill 737 has a MTOW of just over 85 ton and a MLW of 71 ton, then take in G forces ..

    I thing your wheel nut eg may be a thread re torque issue rather then a structural failure of some sort?

    I'd run alloy hubs if they were made from a hi tempered alloy
