Does anyone plan on using those Square aluminum front knockles instead of the plastic ones that come with the kit? zombie - I took a look at your cars page and it looks like one of your Pro 3's for sale has something similar...

Sorry all my Pro3 were all sold...only car I have left available is the Alex 'Cuda R2 WEB special - Orange car...

I'll probably wait to get the front and rear knuckles & hubs...want to see the car as it is for durablity and performance.

Wow..changes already... good thing I purchased extra bones. I'd probably get the TC3 shiny bones for the front if they say it fits....

Well, I'll let you know what I think of the Square knuckles once everything arrives, its built, and running - that would be about 6-9mo at this rate!!

They just want cheaper "bones" and want to buy them locally. I'm hoping we never supply those universals shown in the picture, as the MIP items have always been top notch IMO.

That is good to hear.... I've always had problems with that CV design..they're not as durable as the MIPs...

Tc3: 50mm Blue or shiny version
Pro2 front: 50mm In Purple! and shiny.

Default BODY REQUEST

Erik

can you forward to the appropriate channels...
Would like to see the Acura TL or even the TSX. The front end is very similar to the Proto Mazda 6...so I think it should handle equally well...

(Hey TG, if you see this, go talk to JJ... )
It's great to see internal politics being aired like dirty laundry in a public forum like this. Keep up the good work!!!
