the only fix is to stop crashing and if they do break replace them sorry for the bad news.

Common sense doesn't make you a "smartguy"

So I guess breaking one after landing a jump is crashing? Hmm.....sounds like you don't race but thanks for wisdom. I will keep looking for a second opinion.

I'm hoping STRC is working on something to fix this issue.

Try boiling them for 30min at a rolling boil. It makes them a little more flexible.

A friend used the aluminum parts from ST10 I think, not 100 % sure, I do know that to make it work he did a couple of mods, I believe it's a couple of pages back....

Haha i do race every weekend. What happened here? Iwasnt tring to be rude about this its the truth. Maybe you should give the full story that it broke off just landing a jump (Which i really doubt) I have cartwheeled mine and put it through hell n the track. it was probably cracked and a hard landing pulled it out. THERE IS NO FIX FOR THIS!!!!!!. Buy extra knuckles. I can only hope to be as cool as joe one day

I did this and it seems to have helped as far as cracking the knuckles. I also got the T-bone front bumper. I always seem to catch the end of a PVC pipe or something at my local track. at least now the balls just pop out and I reassemble it. better than $12/pr new knuckles.

I was looking at all the other aluminum knuckles for other trucks and buggies, but everything I saw was too big in comparison. I hope strc or ofna makes something soon as well. I am sure that I would break the jammin parts just as easily unfortunately.

This seems to be a bigger issue on a 10tt than the 10SC...since they are the same part.....does the body and bumper protect it on the 10SC since the wheels are tucked in?

I put a TBR bumper on my staduim truck and that has saved me a few broken parts...I am planning on one for my 10tt either way...I know it wont protect the front wheels or knuckle but I feel better with one on.
