The Inboard freehub bearing is gone! That's the first time I've seen that happen to a Hope, seen the freehubs crack, pawl springs fail and the pawls themselves come apart. The grooves would be from the drive teeth in the hub shell.
Get a hold of Hope, they'll help ya out, probably send you a Stainless Steel driveshell to replace it
