Default Knocking noise when steering to extreme + full throttle

I encounter this problem on my Cyclone S 1/10 EP TC. When I steer to the extreme and 'gun' the throttle, I get this loud knocking sound - 'thok thok thok thok'. Is this normal? I am using universal drive shafts in the front.

Check your universal drive pins if they are install correctly. If the pins holding the shaft is install incorrectly it may result in the knocking sound.

Sounds like the UJ/dog bone is not properly seated within the cups. Its slightly popping out of the cups. Do check on all linkages and likes to ensure that the distance is within spec.

Cheers!!
