Default pbs steering question

I have a ofna picco buggy (we all had to start somewhere...) it has the pbs front end. I have been tring to get more steering throw, to get a tighter turning radius. I have noticed the pillowball knuckle limits the amount of travel. When comparing this with a friends new mbx6 it has much more steering travel. if anyone knows if i could use the muegen parts or of anything else to do the help would be great.
And yes i building a good kit would solve most of my issues, but would like to make it through 1 more season with my beater before taking the plunge.
thanx for any help or ideas given

When i had the buggy I had had to dremel a few spots. one spot is on the upper arm when you turn it you will see where it rubs the linkage. you will see were it touches it doesnt need much dremeling. but i changed to c-hub i used jammin x1x front suspension and its a lot better i had to dremel the lower arms, the from c-hub would touch the arm limiting the movement. i also used lx1 rear arms and front lower ultra lx comp arms, makes it a little wider by like 3mm. hope it helps.

Did u notice if the dremmeling made the parts any weaker? We have 1 corner/jump that that seems to eat the left pillow block if u screw up on the fast line. the other line is safe and slow, but not nearly as much fun.
thanx for the reply

No it didnt get any weaker. you dont have to dremel that much just enough to have a clear passing. about 2 mm
