Try pulling outward on the tail grips to simulate the load that will be put on them. Do they spin freely when you do this? If so, then they will work just fine.

If they do not, then it is possible that your grips did not get molded correctly and you should probably contact Century for some replacements.

Yes, Trex 600N alloy tail hub assembly and slider are a bolt on upgrade to the Radikal, I'm using both on mine. Why you ask? Mostly because they are readily available at the LHS...
