had a broken knuckle exactly like yours recently!
didnt realise its was broken during the qualifyings...made me wonder why my car handled weird all of a sudden as i keep running wide when doing left turns
it was hardly to spot the breakage not until when cleaning the car..

Hmm...

Broke some stuff today..

Cracked a front upright, pulled the pillowball right through it. Drove in to deep and caught the wall. CA'ed it and ran it for what little more I ran today. ( engine acting up, probably an air leak ).

Broke the Mugen CVD too. The rest of the broken parts are stuck inside the axle, so ill probably have to drill out the pin to get to them. !

You guys must be hitting crap hard. I've broken one rear arm, but it was a deserving hit. I caught a wall ( two 2x4's, they aren't forgiving at all, hehe) I even TKO'ed a pan car that was running backwards on the track, and no problems with my car.
You jinxed yourself

here is my CVD. The upright is just cracked, nothing to see there.

This is the real carnage.

Hummm..... makes me wonder which kind of front bumber are using you and all the guys that break front knuckles and uprights. Are you using the small or the large one?

I'm using the small one (but I crash very sparsingly, but when I crash, for sure that's big, ugly and makes me to say a big OUCH!). Have tried to use the wide ones?

Saw your carnage, feel sorry for seeing this, but is broken in the same place as mine 3Racing ones. Mine Mugens survived without a problem (touch wood). But gonna to order some spares for the CVD's (bone primarly).

Another thing that can make to break the CVD could be the one-way outdrive and the O-rings (remove and try without them). I use the Xray ones (stiffer, lighter and cheaper than Mugen ones).

Setting the servo-saver on the tight side helps prevent this sorta thing. It helps prevent dogbone popping and CVD breaking by limiting the amount of deflection when the inside wheel/tire hits something. Running the servo-saver super tight is best but it might nessesitate the use of a metal-gear servo though.

I have also added a steering "stop" by using a longer screw on the outer tierod mounting location. It works but it still need to be a little longer.
