Focus mk 1 & mk2 Billet Front hubs - an improvement over the stock parts - need any?

As I mentioned in the Super Hubs thread, there are 2 suppliers that have built aftermarket billet front hubs for the mk1 and mk2 cars.
I've done a lot of research on the front hub issues, both here, on the FF forum, and at the race track, having witnessed at least 4 Focus teams that experienced front hub failures. I wasn't lucky enough to obtain a set from Golis Machine, the maker of the Super Hubs, because there were none available when I needed them 2-3 years back.
Golis (Will) makes a great product, and he in fact emailed me when he made a subsequent run of parts last year. I would have bought from him if the timing had worked out. However, I have sent 3 teams in his direction that bought hubs from Golis when Will made that latest run of parts last summer.

In early 2016, my research found another racer who contracted another shop to build him billet front hubs a few years back. We went in together and bought more hubs in Spring 2016. I've recently been approached by other racers who now want these hubs. Since I've worked with my supplier before, and know that there are at least 10 sets of their hubs out there with no reported failures, I am again working with that supplier.

I don't post here often, and can't post pictures until I get 25 post counts, so as I did with Chukker, please PM me your email address and/or phone number, and I will share pictures, pricing, material spec information, or answer any other questions you might have.

For Chukker, we are making the hubs to his specs, in a 5x114.3mm bolt pattern with increased hub face O.D. to account for the larger bolt circle - all at no additional charge! Pricing on these hubs is $600/pair which includes ARP long studs and cadmium plating.

best regards,
Mike Coppola

We are at the 10 piece minimum count to kick off this group buy.
If you don't get in now, you won't be able to buy these hubs until enough people step up for another group buy down the road, which may be year(s).
As I said, (and others have attested to) if you track your mk1 or mk2 car, or have grippy street tires - when pushed hard, you WILL eventually break the stock front hubs.
I've had 4 different race teams that turned their nose at these pieces, come back to me later asking if they could obtain some.
Speak now, or be stuck replacing broken hubs, cv axles, brake pads/calipers/rotors, fenders, etc. and losing valuable track time.

I'll be contacting the folks that have spoken up so far, to start collecting funds to get this batch started.

LAST CALL before this group buy gets kicked off next Monday 7/9/18.
We are up to 10 pairs of hubs now. (20 pieces)
As stated in the post above, we can have these hubs made in 5x114.3 bolt pattern, and will also make a few sets that are double drilled to accept the stock 4x108 pattern AND the 4x100 bolt pattern, to be able to broaden the choice of wheels that can be used.
Special bolt pattern requests will be done WITHOUT any additional charge! Still just $600 a pair.
PM me your email address, so I can send pictures and/or additional info.

The batch of hubs we ordered on 7/9/18 is now complete, (13 pairs total!) and I should receive them from the build shop this Thursday according to the Tracking info.
I will be shipping parts to those who purchased them asap.

Since this order was placed, there's been more interest from folks needing these hubs.
I will be kicking off another group buy asap.
IF YOU'RE INTERESTED in a set of these hubs, please respond here, or PM me, and I will get back with you to share details asap.

best regards,
Mike Coppola

Your welcome Whiskerz. That was a large batch that took a while for the builder to finish up.
Thanks for everyone's patience.

It's not too late to get in on this if you speak up asap.
