so this leads to my question, will xray knuckles fit?
i compared some xray ones to mine and they look the same, apart from were the steering ball joint attaches. but that wont effect much.
thanks in advance for replys.
I don't run this car anymore, but I did for a while. You need to look at a few things to help minimize the breakage:
1) Put a Kydex under bumper on the car. (www.manutechracing.com
2) Put a Parma Xray T2 Bumper on the car (you have to dremel it to fit and drill new holes, but it is worth it)
3) tighten up your servo saver as tight as it will go
4) consider aluminum steering blocks
The key to all of this is to try and minimize impact to the front end. Believe it or not the aluminum steering blacks actually help stiffen up the entire assembly. I had lots of great success with this setup and I hardly ever broke parts.
