    Front axle carriers

    Okay guys, so my front knuckles are getting way loose. I have looked at the golden horizons, they look pretty good, any feed back. I dont shop e-bay, so some of the other options are hard find. If I go to alloy do I need to change the pivot balls. I was looking at lunsford ? is it worth the extra dough. I also found that traxxas makes aluminum cups, do they screw into stock knuckle, are they adustable. My little summit is more for fun, so it does not bet bashed as hard as my other trucks. I run two 2s lipos in parrallel. Every ones feed back would be great.

    GH makes a decent knuckle... as do HR and GPM.
    HR does need more attention when threading in the pillow adjusters.

    The Traxxas adjusters do thread into stock knuckles... and since they are threaded, they are adjustable.

    I would stick with stock pillow balls... it seems I am seeing a lot of broken titanium balls and they are switching back to stock.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    I've used RPM thus far without too much problem. I wouldn't consider acrobatics or curbs RPM'S fault. My deciding factor was because they are easily obtainable @ my lhs, not a fan of online though I do have gh en route finally. Just wanted aluminum.

    I have golden horizons on my e revo, they are okay, havn't broke but to get rid of all the slop they will be too tight, they don't work as good as the ones for the big truck, My summit will need new ones soon and maybe bearings the wheels are really sloppy but still runs good.
