i have the square alum front knuckles and a buddy just bought me a pair of the square alum front hub carriers. if i were to crash badly, what would be then next thing to "give"? i recently had a freak accident with the car - the front right wheel axle broke in half where the swing shaft and axle meet (the cup) and it shredded the Square aluminum knuckle
I just rebuilt it but am now wondering if if put the aluminum hub carriers on, what would break if i clipped a board pretty hard. would it transfer to the universal shaft and snap, or rip the gear box apart? i guess anything could happen, just wondering if anybody is using both

thanks

vic

The gearbox is safe because nothing actually bolts to it. What will bend/break next is the a-arm, hinge pin, and lettered blocks.

It was 58km/h not miles per hour. And the 415 posted a better and more consistant time over an 8 minute session by several seconds. But the Evo IV posted the fastest lap time over the 8 minutes.

Yep, shim it just to where there is no play but does not bind at all. Also shim the output shaft/crown gear so it doesn't have play either. Keep care that the mesh in your bevel gears keep a tick of play (backlash) so your drivetrain will roll free. This will help to keep your gears from wearing prematurely too.

Fraz:

sunday the track is open frmo 10am to 6pm. off road racing starts at 1pm. so you can probably sneak in a few packs on sunday.

monday is open practice. ill be there testing my car with a new tire set up. and tuesday is the on road race. (probably be pretty crowded)

See you there!

btw.. they're racing on Jan 1st. Racing starts at 6pm

i guess that goes to show that the evo 4 is a really fast car....it might just be a bit harder to drive since it is shft.....

sorry for the mistake, i guess im used to seeing mph instead of kph.....
