Raul,
You had a bad night, don't let that frustrate you. We have all been there. Keep pushing forward, you did look really good except for the mishaps. Carl and Chris, you both have those cars looking pretty sweet.

Default pipe?

Randy, just so you know there are no corners, just points! 2x4's dont like fragile plastic.

DOes the kit come with the hard frt knuckle or the standard????
I think I will order some hard ones, that doesnt sound right.

Raul had a really ruff night. I Broke 2 out of 3rds of qualifing. Alum stuff again. Each time I race I keep adding stonger materials to my car. Switched to steel ball ends and the Ti steering rods. Next, the Ti camber links.

But I thinks Jim had it worst of all. He runs the EVO, shaft drive car with the LW suspension. On the last round he ripped the entire drivers side suspension off the chassis when he hit a 2x4 corner that was not flush with the neigboring 2x4.

If hobby chamber sold Tamiya parts, he would make a killing. STEVE at speedtech will be hearing from the East Coast crew shortly.

the only thing i dont like about the hardened steering blocks is that there is a bigger tendency to snap the upper ball for the camber mount. when i use the regular ones, the top screw will pull out instead, on the hardened ones, it generally snaps off flush with the block....

Bah, the plastic should just break off the end of the 2x4 man, you must not be hitting it hard enough

Check out Steve's site for aluminum knuckles, caster blocks, and hub carriers.
