WTP. Both are good, but the WTP has what you're looking for, and better engagement.

ya and the wtp looks like it could last for ever cause it dosent have a rachet ring in the hub so if the rachet ring ever strips out on the driver you just replace the driver instead of the whole hub

I like it even more now haha
It seems even more legit now
What should I get it laced to if I end up getting a new rim?

That also means more room for bigger bearings, which means it lasts longer, too, and it's smoother.

I've always wanted a rant. But in your situation I would get the WTP.

WTP with 6 pawls!? I'd definitely get it, it's gonna last ages and it's gonna be loud as fuck if you're into that sorta thaaang.

As for rims, Hazard Lite or Rollcage.
