Default Hinge Plates

Looks like I wobbled out the hinge holes in the rear plate. Which way is the strongest? The carbon or the heavier aluminum? Not sure which way to go on this.

carbon will wear a bit faster, unless you do some pre fitting work and use a high end super glue around the hinge holes.

the aluminum ones wear a bit longer, but add wight.

Team PhatDad RC offers a anti squat plate for the rear lower hinge plate, and it has bushings or bearings in them.

i think AMS offers them with bearings, but im not sure.

For the price and ease of replacement I buy the stock ones and replace them 1-2 times a year.

No need for a bearing in this part of the Baja nothing is gained you are putting a breakable part where it isnt needed.
