I hit the board once or twice per race day. All it takes is one tap and the thread stripped. I kept changing the steering knuckles. They aren't expansive. But I am wondering if there is a way to fix this permanently. A guy at our track suggested CA glue it. I am not too sure about that...
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Depends on the material the steering block is manufactured from.
On my TC5 the orignal steering bocks were a fairly soft plastic, these stripped very easily from a tap.
My Yokomo BD7 has stripped one and again i beleive this is because the standard plastic is fairly soft.
TC5 / TC6 hard plastics never used to strip the steering blocks and in a collision a C Hub or supsension arm would tend to break.
If harder plastic, graphite or aluminium steering blocks were used i dont think they would strip but likely end up breaking another component.
