Re: Shop says I need new hubs?
The hubs fail more frequently doing road course duty. DOT R and/or slicks make it worse. Spinning with track tires supposedly damages them faster.
The stock hubs aren't that great. You might consider SKF. They are very durable and the same part number works on all 4 corners so you can keep a spare around, but they cost twice as much as Autozone replacements. The stock ones have a different front/rear part number, so you need to have 2 different spares.
Replacement isn't a bad job. You can do it during the lunch break in the paddock
