    part #7033x

    Picking up the traxxas pillow ball retainers /caps today i hear you just screw them in, thats into
    A hole with no threads. i have done that with other part so i know it will work.

    The lhs said they (traxxas) made a mistake that it was not for the stock knuckle, after thought and searching
    the net i am going for it, im calling traxxas before i hit the lh shop.

    This is the only way to clean up the slop i feel, i want to get closer to the perfect toe vrs camber angles
    And when the toe and camber have a1/4 inch slop to start with a close to perfect front end geomitry ain't
    Gonna happen.. i will post the results

    Stay warm and merry merry merry+ rc fun to all.

    It is amazing to me on how many RC shops have no clue about the parts they carry.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    Just shows you need to do your homework and then do more homework.
    and if all else fails call the man...

    They work fine and will cut their own threads when you screw them in. I've been using them for a while with zero problems.

    No problem. Just make sure you put a dab of thread lock on them before you install just to give a bit more bite.

    We've been using them for a while in the stock knuckle/axle carrier. Had one back out, probably should have used some thread lock. Other than that they really help with the slop which is a problem for higher speeds.

    What a major differance that made ..... till i slammed a solid chunk of concrete and broke a knuckle
    but it ran much straighter and did what i asked it to do, the crash was a bad eye problem i have,
    awaiting surgery on that, off to the lhs for new knuckles.. thanks again
    oh and so easy to install im happy happy happy......

    Ps. Count your turns if you remove the pillow balls helps to get the camber and toe close that is if u remove them.
