Who makes the alu front knuckles?

Preferably in purple, but it doesnt matter a bunch

I need to know the nice ones, not 3 racing crap, the nice ones

And this is for a local racer, not me.... So I need some links and all
Go to www.rcmart.com.

Under the Pro4 parts you will see the genuin pro4 alloy front, rear and c hubs there.

Do any aftermarket company make alu 6deg C hub for the cyclone? I only see the 4deg 3deg and 0deg but no 6deg.

soon as I get everything back together again.. I'll take some new pics...
I've had it since the Hara Edition was released..then upgraded with all the new WCE parts. I like keeping my cars looking new. They get cleaned, dusted and lubed after every race.

Square stuff is usually top notch.
Jet is getting better..using better alloy.
3Racing is good too.. good quality and great prices.
I have the Ti ball studs..so far will all the boards that got in my way
haven't broke one yet.

my square aluminum knuckles have been great i have had them for 3 years now first on the pro4 and now on my cyclone. i did have a ball stud break off in one so i had to get it re-machined with a new thread for the king pin and after that i started running the 3racing ti ball studs as well. no breaks. i have never really had any important parts form jet, just looks and they have held up just fine. i do like 3racing they seem to have made more of an effort for improvement after market then the others with true hop ups that change the car rather then just remaking something in aluminum. either way when you go from plastic to aluminum the parts should always be built better unless you just happened to of got a bad apple that made its way down the line.

great reading the whole thread through.
but i have a tire wear problem on my cyclone wce.
both front tires wear excessively on the inside (as in the attached picture).
i started with 1.5deg negative camber and went back to between 0.5 and 0.75 by now they still wear like this. the camber rise is on the lowest setting (hole1 in the topview).
what can be the problem here?

Have you tried Tamiya's wide pitch diff pulleys for the TRF415?

I wonder if they really add any efficiency...

They are like 36 tooth pulleys with every other tooth missing. It's the opposite of cutting every other tooth on the belt, except that you are not weakening the belt. I do not know about these pulleys being prone to skipping, but makes me curious.

Your 3racing 18t main pulley and the diff wide pitch pulleys will bring you down to 2.00 ratio if you can actually use them. Maybe the belts would be too loose using those parts and you had already given it a try.

Just a thought...

Well I am having to move for my job and that means no more 4wd touring car racing and having to migrate to the 4wd electric buggy world.

If anyone is interested in a pretty nice Hot Bodies Cyclone Setup, here is my link:

That's just the wear characteristic of rubber tires. A rubber tire rolls over during cornering which causes the inside of the tire to wear out along the sidewall seam. A larger air gap or a softer compound will allow the tire to roll over more thus wearing the seam out even faster. Just don't remove all your camber to try to fix the situation. Removing too much camber can cause handling problems(unstability) due to the lack of contact patch you will experience during cornering.

yes I've tried the 36/18 combo.. belt was too loose even with the belt tensioner at it's tightest position. very little difference between 2.05 and 2.00 ratio. the new Tamiya 416 will have 37T / 18T pulleys. hopefully the 37T will be more of a direct fit. I'll definately get a set to try when it's released.

What did you need to do to make the 501x diff fit better?
Would these work with a front one-way? ... or would too much material need to be removed?
