Dave, can the orange 5.8mm balls for the inner camber links be bought, or will I have to settle for black from now on?

Default Steering knuckles

Are the left and right knuckles the same? The 2 knuckles have different numbers molded on it which are ''1'' and ''2''. I can't read jap therefore I can't tell.
By looking at them , it looks exactly the same but if they are not which one is left/right?

Anybody using the option graphite long arms? Any good?

Have been running the car for a couple of weeks now and I now know why you guys on this thread have been quite fanatical about this fish

I've seen a buddy of mine with it crash hard onto a concrete barrier and came off unfazed . Any other car maybe with the exception of the X-Ray would have been having dangling arms This is da tank I'm tellin ya!!!!

Peace.

I saw the 1 and 2 marked on the knuckles as well, but I don't think there is any difference between the 2. I would think Steve would have mentioned it in the suppliment sheet if there was any difference.

Randman,
Appreciate your reply.

Does the supplement sheet have all the information that's important in building the car? Mine is in Jap and there seems to be quite a bit of side notes in the manual that may be useful.

If it's not too inconvenient, do you think I could get a copy of the sup sheet?

Cheers!

The suppliment sheet has a few tips to building the car. I dont have a spare copy, but call Steve at SpeedTech and ask him for one.

Randman,
I live outside the US. I'll try to find a way; a Japanese girlfriend or something.

Thanks.

I really think that the # thing might just be from when the knuckles were first made, and Alex wanted to make sure the mold was right. If 1 broke first, they would go over the mold and make sure it's getting the same amount of material as #2. Companies often do that with new stuff, and have the public test their parts more than anyone else. Since the knuckles dont break, they propably never changed the mold.

hmm, didn't realize how short the arms on the Excel car were, how does that affect the handling on the R2, wouldn't it be really twitchy compared to the long arm setup?
