Should I just replace the bearings and see if that works first or are the hubs shot? If I do need to replace them, is it worth going for paragon's racer's edge hubs since I do plan on tracking the car once its up and running.
I would start with the bearings and if they find the hubs are damaged when it is apart, they can source new ones (or you can and bring them to them). Typically the hubs only need to be replaced if there is damage from excessive heat or wear due to bad or failed bearings/abuse.
