Alot of hubs are now having bushings in their drivers.
First Eclat, and now Demolition has them, another company had them, forgot what it is.

Yep. They have more flex than a bearing, which is why they are replacing driver bearings with them. There is a lot of weird forces and tension on drivers in a hub, and by putting something with a little give, you are less likely to explode a driver. The bushings might wear out though...I don't know their longevity.

For hubs they are usually a polymer compound, so basically a plastic that has a little stretch/cushion to it.
