HPI Baja 5B Hostile Billet Rear Hub Carrier

Just got my Hostile Billet rear hub carriers today!

Here are pics of the install process. I would have to say that the most "difficult" part of the install was putting the HD Team fast eddie bearings into the hostile hubs. I didnt "cool the bearings" & "heat the hubs" as the instructions said nor did I buy the Hostile bearing install tool. I used my table vise as you can see in the pics and everything came out great. I did put a "smudge" of team fast eddie tranny grease and this made it a little easier to intall the bearings but even with the grease, the bearings are very tight in the hubs.
