    I’ve used the aluminum ones by Traxxas and by Hot Racing. No complaints for either one.

    Have fun!

    The ones that come stock on the Ultimate and Platinum edition Slash 4x4 trucks are amazing! I have been running them on trucks since 2011!

    I tried traxxas and aftermarket alloy ones (hot racing, atomik) on my stampede and they get slop in them pretty quick (read a summers worth of bashing) and I found some that use bearings for the king pins. I've only bashed a couple times with them, but I was unreasonbly hard on it... busted an MIP axle, torched an RPM arm, broke the ackerman bar... the c-hubs are still perfect.

    GPM SLA019A is the part:


    I was concerned about the kingpin bolts they use, but they seem to be holding up fine:


    Pretty sure there's another company that makes them with bearings, but I'm not remembering it now.

    This is what i wanted thnk you alot
    This is absolutely perfect
    So i would not need to worry about fully tightening the
    The shoulder screw because of bearing
    Does the c hub support a kingpin with c clips?

    And also everyone thnk you for your helping

    It may have come with hinge pins... I can't recall, I used 3x50mm bolts with locknuts and cut them down so they are fully captured and I hate using c-clips if I don't have to. The kingpins use the specific shoulder bolts I pictured that came with the c-hubs.

    The 3x50mm bolts I used have the unthreaded portion just long enough to stick out of the arm to require a 1mm or so shim to remove slop with the locknut tight.

    Mines not light, but it's a stampede 4x4 with a slash chassis. They use pretty much all the same parts, which is why I mentioned the c-hubs I'm using.

    I run a 1/8th system in it currently on 3S and I drive it like I stole it most of the time.

    MIP x-duty's on all 4 corners
    t-bone center shaft (had to get the longer one when I changed to a slash)
    2.8 trenchers with 17mm wheels.

    Integy offers some with bearings as well. I knew I ran across another set besides the GPM ones:

    Not sure how good they are, but appears they use the stock king pin/shoulder bolts.
