Most of the jet and 3 racing stuff I would stay away from as the quality isnt great unforntualey. I bought into it at first casue its cool looking but dont buy any aluminum stuff from them that is functional like hubs and that stuff. The swaybar mounts are nice. All of the stuff they make for the drivetrain is heavy, adds up to 1 ounce rotating mass if you add the alum outdrives.

i just check the price from Japan it cost 4725 YEN for a piece of capacitor. i do not know what is the difference between speedpassion and Keyence. hopefully it would be the best cap in current market due to just release.

Larry, I've been using Jet Racing Pro4 / Cyclone aluminum Steering knuckles on my MSX and other than the bearings having a really tight fit, haven't had any issues. What kind of problem did you have with them, if any?

everything I had bent slightly after only a few weeks, I ripped it all off after a couple weeks, denny stripped out a few things and had some bend also. One of the c hubs bent about 7 degrees.

Usually when something is to cheap to be true, its too cheap to be good. 18 bucks for alum knuckles is 32 dollars less than the cost of a Good set of alum knuckles from Talmale for my Xray. I looked for a long time and cannot find the kind of alum they use in jet and 3 racing stuff. That too me tells me they dont want me to know.

OK.... Any suggestions for the weak knuckles on the Cyclone? I have found the Square Racing Ball studs to be durable. I guess every chassis has it's weak points so, my question is, what do you guys do to address the problems?

BTW I'm using HB aluminum outdrives.

How about the Hpi Aluminum knuckles? Have you tried them, yet?
