Default Hub strength?

Is there any strength difference, resistance to stripping splines, between the separate hub and drum vs the integral ones?

If you are asking about the Ausco HD hub and drum set compared to OEM drum/hub unit then yes, they are miles apart. The OEM hub is the weak link in the drive system.

Scotty has a great point - if You do some searching, you will find a ton of threads regarding stripped hubs and in many cases, axle splines too due to the cr*p stock hubs. If You're going to stay the performance course you're posting about in your other threads, I would highly suggest going with the HD hubs, and as long as You're doing that, look into the Ausco disc brake kit which improves your braking significantly (which You will need on a beefed-up cart as the stock brakes are marginal even at 12mph, let alone 20, 30, or more) and as a bonus, includes the heavy-duty hubs as a part of the kit. One of the best $250 investments You can make :)
