Default Re: Shiftkit rear hub compatibility?

I was thinking of trying a Shimano XT rear hub, but that's more time relaceing and trueing the wheel without knowing if it would hold up to the task. So I was just wondering what are some good hubs that current shiftkit user's are using?
If it blew just putt-putting around the house - then it would have blew under pedal power sooner rather than later. Do tell what what blew, what exact kind of hub it was, etc.

Most people use a variety of Shimano hubs and derailleur systems with great success.
