Is this the pro mx'er Jeff Alessi? If so, congrats on last season! Are you riding east or west and how is Mike doing after the testing crash, heard it was another nasty one. Good luck this season! Oh, as jaylude22 said, they are the same, only the wider hubs on the truggy.

They have an optional steering knuckle for the truggy but the buggy ones will work just fine.

Default What you tslking about, Nuckle?

The new truggy knuckles are a little bit beefier than the old RC8 ones but they are interchangeable.

ok so the rear hubs or uprights r diffrent from my truggy to my buggy. what r the diffrences between the truggy and buggy that arnt obvious (arms chassis towers cvd chassis braces gearing atc...) i need to know what stuff i might over look like the hubs never thought they would be different and if i broke one i would just put the buggy ones on so if theres any other parts that dont seem to be different and r can someone give me the heads up.

mikes good hes been on the bike riding a lil last few weeks, he needs to shake the cobwebs but is getting faster by the lap so i give him a month before hes full speed again his endurance and strength is unreal tho hes a mini herculez lol. thanks season was good tried hard but wanna do better this year on east. teams been thinking i should go west tho so now i dunno whats gonna happen.
