Default Losi 8

Why every picture I see of a losi 8 buggy they have either front aluminum carriers or knuckles or both? Does it give more steering throw or something. I have a 8T and have never broke these and I am very hard on it. I know there is a good amount of play in them though.

I`ve never used them or think I would need ti use them . I`d also like to know if this is just bling or actually improves performance .

the spindles do give more throw over the stock plastic spindles.

Carrier's offer more adjustability by allowing you to raise and lower the ballstud.

The front aluminum knuckels will give you a little more steering
