    1/24 SUMO metal steering knuckles



    Recently i bought a 2(SCALE 1/24 RedcatRacing SUMO ) truggys and after few hits to the steering assembly same part(Steering knuckles)failed on both units.
    Then I bought another truck for parts and after few hits again same part failed.

    I emailed Redcat Racing support with the issue. I thought they might to accept this as a recall, BUT,insteadthey want to make money on alloy parts andsuggested to upgrade my plastic partsto metal parts.

    Just 2 front (Steering knuckles ) in alloy for 69.99 USD.

    In my opinion it is way to much,since I get my Sumo cars for 49.99 each.

    InsteadI got some brass tubbing brass rod , soldering iron, spent 2 hours of my lifeand madethese myself.

    I did not upgraded to bearings yet and used original plastic sleeves theyexactly fit inside thebrass tube on the pictureand axle rotatesinside sleeves.

    Please see my picturesso you might get idea howto makeit if you need itor pay 69,99 for OEM.

    Wow!! That's really amazing good for you! if you look around you can find parts for much cheaper than their MSRP price but good for you for taking the time to do something like that! How did they end up working out ?

    SEVENTY DOLLARS for some cheapass 1/24 car steering knuckles?

    a Mugen or Kyosho doesn't even cost that for their 1/8 scale cars.
