stay away from the Square steering knuckles...I had a set and broke after a small tap on the wall...
the Jet version is more durable. or stay with the stock graphite ones..

if you're looking for jet try RcModel or Precision RC in HK.

Damn that sucked to break them so easily. Sometimes I guess bad luck happens. I will try to get the Jet ones then. See if I can track them down. Not a huge deal but would like to have them for bling and for a little extra strength.

I had all the 'bling' parts on my Pro 4 and I have to say the only parts that I have put on my cyclone are Aluminium Rear Hubs, Aluminium Front C-Hubs and the Carbon Bumber Brace.
When using the rear hubs everything runs smoother and when using the Front hubs you get less slop (not that ther is much!).
However the small gains from these are offset by the gain in weight. However I think it is worth it with the car being so under weight anyway!
The Knuckle Arms are just not worth it though. There is more weight for your servo to turn. The square versions bend really easily and the Jet ones dont fir the bearings very well.
So in my opinion if you want bling go for the Hubs and forget the Knuckle arms!

Failry sure the toe angle section on the front is meant for the outboard toe angle rather than the block your running on the front, unless your running 2.5 degrees of outboard toe in or out

There is a part that is for the block angle and then there is a line for the toe angle. I run a 1 degree block but 0 degrees of toe up front.

I'm running the kit 2.5 front block and no additional toe out. Just the stock 2.5 for the front arms.
