Default Front Knuckles

SO let me get this right!
THE LOSI front knuckles are a direct replacement of the HB ones?
Also the rear HUB CARRIERS look the same, do these fit as well

i wouldn't say "direct", since you need to change bearings because the losi hubs are setup for standard bearings, not metric ones...

I think if you wanted to use the losi ones, you'd need to possibly swap out the CVD as well as the hub and bearings...

I put HPI aluminum knuckles on my pro4 4 years ago and moved them to my Cyclone 3 years ago when I got it, It's nice to never have to buy knuckles again.
I think the stock C-hubs last a long time using alu. knuckles, they seem to reinforce the C-hub because I almost never brake them.
I don't like alu. C-hubs, they can twist and it's hard to tell if there bent just a little.

I have both on a drift car and I just had to bend one of the Cs, it was letting the hub move up and down about .040. I don't know how old it is or what kind of life it has had but the bushing to C is worn enough to notice. I almost but plastic Cs on it yesterday before I fixed the up and down pay.

whilst talking about setups lately I have been running 1.25mm shims under all suspension blocks rubber on asphalt racing.
grip and balance of the car has really improved this way. on high grip tracks it might traction roll but medium to low grip i think it really helps.

any one tried this also?
