Fulcrum Racing Quattro Freehub made of soft cheese

Is there a replacement freehub body for Fulcrum Racing Quattros that isnt made from some sort of soft cheese?

I am running Shimano and have a pair of these wheels for training and crit racing and changing the cassette is a nightmare because the freehub body gets beaten up pretty badly by the cassette.

I believe it is made from some sort of soft cheese as the cassette seems to eat into it to the point where changing the cassette can take 20-30 minutes by the time you have prised off the one on there, filed down any bumps caused by the old cassette and then put the new one on.

Is there one with a more hardy freehub body that you can buy and fit?

Thanks

    Ugh, I noticed this last time I changed cassette on my Khamsins with only 1k miles of use. Thankfully I should only need to change cassette when it's worn, but considering the wheels only cost me £75 I won't be spending £55 on a freehub.
