More for bling since the stock plastic parts work well. (At least they do in my buggy). Maybe the knuckles make sense due to the greater load those larger tires and wheels will impose.

Just finished assembling my ST-R. The front knuckles look to be the same as the SP2. Anyone found a setup for this truggy yet? I built mine to the included factory setup.

What is the tire of choice on a high percentage clay track? Bowties or crimefighters?

One bonus of the kit... the unused parts on the trees look like they can be used for spares for my SP2.

crime fighters have worked beautifully for me on clay and even dry dirt.

alright guys as i am trying to patiently wait for my tonys screw kit and steering knuckles to arrive,

how are you building the kit, to kit specs with everything or going with a different setup.

i found Mark Pavidis' setup but diff oil and shock oil seems really high. i will be running outdoor on a loose dirt track
