Default Aluminum Knuckles

I have a set.....sitting in my box
Those knuckles are nice for 1 reason.......they dont break, besides that arent that great.

1 - the bearings fit a little loose.....in every set I've seen.....not a lot, but enough slop already exists in the TC3....dont need more

2- they dont have the little stoppers to keep them from turning too far

3 - Heavy, nuff said


None of those qualities help the racer.......I guess they are ok for bashing.......I have the rears as well, twisted them like a pretzel

I also had a set of the aluminum ones....they may not break like the composite ones but after just a few small accidents they were tweaked....I guess if you just run for fun the durability might be worth it....but if you race and dont want a wandering setup ,mabe try a set of the (Losi) knuckles, their about 5 times as strong and the screw threads are less tendent to strip out on ya.

Default Alm Knuckles

Get the ones for the LOSI XXX-S by Trinity, butthey come in Red.
next choice would be the ones from RC-SQUARE
but after all those, went back to the standard Losi Knuckles!

QUESTION: are the after market stuff for the TC3 at the CRC site made by CRC? They really look a lot like the GPM's? Just asking.

I have tried them all and they all suck . Losi is the way to go . End point adj. doesnt stop the servo from going to far in a crash. If you can race with 10 other cars and not hit one or get hit by one in a 5 min. race then you are even better than the factory guys.

Ok tempest we"ll all stop hitting the walls if you stop banging your head on the pavement..... buy the way, ask some of the factory team drivers like Barry Baker why they run Losi knuckles instead of the aluminum junk you got ripped off on

Howard , their prices are per pair. When they were released for the tc3 they were just as expensive as the other companies but when they didnt sell they started blowing them out. I have bought just about everything crc made for the tc3 and it all pretty much sucked. the front and rear arm blocks i got from them were so far off it was pathetic. The company has some awesome stuff , but when they tried their hand at the aluminum hop ups they waisted their time.
