    Ball joint type steering for Volcano?

    Although the aluminum steering arm thing is on hold.....(thank you for your patiance)
    I will try to redeem myself with a retrofit to help with the sterring arm issue.
    Looking to see if we can convert to a ball joint type steering. (like on a REVO)

    Parts consists of upper/lower control arms, ball joint type steering nuckles, and new gear box's front and rear.
    Not sure if it will work ( according to my guy in china, it will or can be done ) and I could still use a lab rat or two from the selected people on this tread. Currently I only have the conversion parts for the Volcano but Tornado parts are coming soon.
    So, lab rats must have a Volcano

    I see ehroof has a Volcano.... what do you say ehroof??? I can provide the parts, you think you can make it work?
    I would try it myself but don't have much time now a days and it does take some now how.

    Let me know ehroof, it's in your capable hands..if you want to try

    Mark



    P.S. Don't forget guys, gals & everything in between, this is a retrofit we are trying to do. I'm not sure if it will work... I already feel bad enough about the aluminum steering arms being delayed or on hold for now but we are trying.

    Sorry shlo25,

    This retrofit consists of a few parts and it gets costly.

    Upper/Lower arms front and back.
    F & R gearbox's
    all new sterring knukles and rear hub with ball joints.

    Got 2 guys gonna try this out already. If they are successfull, we will sell it as a kit.

    RE: Ball joint type steering for Volcano?

    it seems to me that all the forces that might be applied are more distributed, so there is less stress on different parts.... just a guess

    Yeah, but my Revo broke a few suspension arms[&:]

    of course, since the Volcano is significantly lighter than the Revo...we shouldn't have that problem:P

    I'm really interested to see how this turns out
