I believe the mini's are lighter.We run the Speedway Engineering mod lite with the smaller bearings and hubs. The GN style is overkill
for Modifieds.

I strongly suggest the GN hubs, I think all the different brands use the same bearings and makes for easy replacement and at the track fixes if needed, plus all the GN hubs are 5x5 bolt pattern. Yes the GN may be slightly heavier but it cant be much.
