A Note on Magnesium Vs. Aluminum Hubs
- Magnesium hubs tend to be a little more 'stiff' than a standard aluminum hub. Therefore, utilizing a Magnesium hub of similar dimension to an aluminum hub will give a more 'free' feel to the relevant end of the kart - in this case primarily rear hub areas. In addition, an equivalent Magnesium hub will also be lighter, reducing rotating weight. Some say that heat transfer to the rim is also reduced, keeping tire pressures reduced, but this may be controversial or less crucial to most racers and applications.
- Aluminum hubs are tried and true - you can't go wrong with a standard Aluminum hub! Factor in the cost of Magnesium, and it is easy to see why Aluminum hubs are still relevant, although often not standard on many mid to upper range chassis. For many regional or club racers, Aluminum hubs are an excellent choice, as they provide the grip and performance that is necessary for the application. In rain, an Aluminum hub is a great option as well.
