    Aluminum Steering Knuckle Upgrade...

    Aluminum Steering Knuckle Upgrade...

    Well after a lot of contemplating i bit the bullet and tore into the steering on my rig. At the season opener i broke a knuckle on the 2nd gate of the 3rd course. Here's the low down..(note: credit for this mod goes to K_B over on rcc)

    i ordered a set of TLT aluminum knuckles from ckrc. at first when mock mounted, it appeared that they weren't even close. The ears kept hitting the C's on the axles when turned. So a little filing took care of that. Now they turned. But, there was no way of mounting them as, height wise, they were too short. So i drew up a quick sketch of some bushings for mounting. I drilled, then reamed, the C's to .313". The bushings i turned on the lathe have a .312 diameter hub with a .500" hub. there is a .258'' reamed hole through the bushing, to accept the .257" hub on the knuckle. This bushing keeps the knuckles centered both horizontally and vertically. also, gives it a lot more strength. i made four of them for the front, 2 on each wheel. I also used HPI RS4 dogbones as they are a tad shorter than the stockers. The drive cups had to be ground down. then I threw them on the lathe to drill/ream the hole a little deeper. A band saw and a small file helped me make the two notches deeper...
    heres a pic of the bushings and knuckles.


    Then i made a new servo mount out of 3/16" aluminum angle. (forgot to take pics) so no more servo flex....
    I also spun some new steering links. i bent the connecting link to give some more clearance. man, i love me some new shiny links. (this pic show old servo mount)


    here's a pic of the new knuckles, steering links, and new servo mount. (hard to see the mount)


    and all put back together. oh, and i glass beaded the orange anodize off the bead rings. (Gonna do the insides tomorrow, then the chassis is next)
