We had a great time at TROG this year. Got to hang out with a bunch of friends, got to make some new ones and see a ton of great cars. Everything was going awesome till we decided to take some pictures with the roller coaster in the back ground, My buddy Steve and I pulled our cars out to good spot to take the photos. Took the photos and then it was off to get something to eat and a beer. as we were driving back to the exit the, the car bouncing along in the sand, I heard a thump, then stopped moving. No grinding sounds, no catastrophic failure explosion. We couldn't fix it there anyway so Steve took me back to the hotel to get my truck and trailer and we pulled it up on the trailer and decided to look at it later, and just went and got some grub. Later I pulled the hub cap off the pass side rear wheel thinking maybe I sheared an axle key. whe I popped the cap off a big chunk of metal fell out onto the trailer. To my astonishment, the frreaking hub had broken apart, woodruff key pointing up. These are Speedway early ford hubs, that were on the axle already when I bought it from a friend of mine. Personally I would not have bought them, but he had, they were new with new speedway drums on them as well, so I just left them. I just got this car on the road 2 weeks ago, and it has less than 350 miles on it since then. I trailered it to both Old North State Invitational and to TROG just because I didn't have many miles on it and it had not been tested out to my liking yet. So glad I did. The Hubs are supposed to be forged, but these look like cast iron to me, they certainly don't have the grain structure of a forged steel part. And on top of that, if it was steel wouldn't it tear? not crack apart like and engine block? No matter I will be replacing both of the hubs and the drums with original Ford parts. I just wanted other people out there that might already be running these or planning on running these to see this. This happened at approximately 5 mph at about 1600 rpm on a the beach in the sand. and had never been abused. I would hate to see what would happen if this came apart at speed on the freeway. It could easily cause a car to go out of control and kill the driver or who ever he runs into when this Chinese crap comes flying apart. Below are some pictures of the failure.
