Well "old Tim" in the Speedway video did refer to the front hub as a casting so no blame there. If they advertise as forged well they would be up th creek. PWood had a great observation. Now as far as "Chinese junk" I call BS. It's the companies that farm out the manufactruing to the Chinese who are to blame. Make it look good and keep the cost down is their mantra. So you might want to lay the blame where it belongs. If the companies wanted high quality they would have to pay for it and they might as well make the parts in N. America. But they and/or their shareholders want to make a profit, sometimes more than they should, so they order cheap and let the cards fall where they may.
