Hubs are a tuning tool, I would take the opportunity to buy a couple of different lengths for different track conditions.

Yes, a well installed threaded insert will work fine but you have to ask yourself why did the old one strip out. Hubs are one of the most highly stressed components on a race kart, do you really want to be wondering about it when your kid hits the apex at the end of the straight while pulling off a dive-bomb pass????

JMHO,
