    What part is this?

    Not sure it came off my Boss. Any thoughts?

    Looks to be a pivot ball holder from one of your hub carriers

    they snap in. if you can take the wheel off you probably can replace it. Those are tough to get out tho. so how you managed to knock one loose it intriguing to me.

    It should pop back into one of your hub carriers, you will need to find the one it came off of and take the wheel off and pop it back into place with the oval part going onto the pivot ball so it can move
    This is a pic of the hub carrier see the 2 empty holes on the ends that is where your part will go you should have a wobbly wheel I'm assuming and that's should fix it good luck and god bless

    Thanks guys!! Yup you were right.. I must have hit a curb? Not sure I saw it actually fly off.. I popped in a new one.. I think I might get the metal ones.. This is the second time one of them broke..

    For these little cars, just go RPM hubs. Done.

    You should notice the absence on a wheel that has more slop than the others. The knuckles are one of the first things I would upgrade. RPM has lots of happy users, but I think stepping up to alu is a better choice.
