I recommend you do the KPI mod.
it's not hard to do and not very expensive + you'll gain variable camber when you steer and great lock angles

you will need:

1. Yokomo Type-C Upper Suspension Arm - from Banzai hobby (link by Pickled)
2. MST I PARTS-wheel hubs 210008 New - from Ebay (link by Pickled)
3. MST CVA wheel axle (2 PCS) 310006 New - from Ebay (link by Pickled)
4. Universal Shaft 46mm:OTA R31 from Broadtech.hk (search : R31-15-46) (link by Eunique)
5. 2 20mm set screws ( I got a set from rcmart for 2.90$)

sorry I can't post links yet but you can do a search with the names I wrote

so it all comes down to 35$ + shipping (if you buy the MST Plastic wheel hubs like I did, the alloy ones are 50$)

all you need are the wide angle CVD's they are capable of 55* and the stock only 45* but start to chatter about 40*

Got some practice in today after going back to stock 2.14 CS ratio and like it better...much better than when I started out with this chassis. Center belt seems loose now and will need belt tensioner

Hi eunique
yesterday I got the 46mm dogbones from broadtech (the link you posted)
they goes great with the MST wheel axles because the head of the dogbone is a bit small
so there is less friction inside. it also gave more steering angle and the wheels almost dont shake at all now. Thanks!

You're welcome...I'm glad you like it. And glad I could be of help. I'm having a lot of fun with my chassis now and trying to get better at drifting. I'm not a pro and can't even do tandem as I get nervous and crash. I'm just practicing so I can get a better line around the track.

Did u make sure that they are wide angle? Otherwise, if they are not wide angle, you will still get chatter at full steering lock

Ok...yes, that's the correct one. For some reason I thought you were ordering Broadtech for the KPI mod

No worries...the aluminum steering and UWA will get you wider steering angles and get rid of chatter.
