    The Anza casters are extra awesome, and come with a bulletproof kingpin. I like them a lot better than the Traxxas aluminum ones, because they are a higher grade of aluminum (7075 vs. 6061), have a better, more adjustable design, and are great looking.

    Anza for sure. Just a much better design than all the others who just copy the traxxas design. Being able to alter roll center by raising or lowering the outter link really changes the way the truck takes the turns. Its such a small change but it is very noticable while driving, esp on a high grip track.

    anza, strc, hot racing all have great aluminum. You want to get plastic RPM front carriers to use with them opposed to getting alum carriers. metal on metal is annoying for a few reasons, avoid it

    also if you order from anza direct you can get their front alum bulkhead brace for 6$...and they make hardened front axles for $6 also. and proline pro2 hardened king pins are available if you want them

    That's some good advise I forgot to mention. Use the rpm steering knuckles with aluminum casters and they wont wear out nearly as fast.
