I never understood that stuff about the track.....wider track with lower offset wheels, and higher offset wheels in the rear to match

Yes, those are the knuckles. You'll need the bearings and CVD ends to match.

Here's some real basic explanations/videos on Suspension Tuning that might help explain things.

Oh god....Don't tell me I need to go spend more money on bearings and cvd ends =(

^^ not really? get them in first and see if the ones you have now fit. you might even get away with getting bearings from the hobby shop

The MST Knuckles use 10x15 bearings and 5x11 bearings.

The D3 uses 2 M5x10x4 bearings for the knuckles.

Oh well. Bearings aren't that expensive



Here are those pictures I said I would post


I had some upper arms from a different chassis laying around. I put in a real long grub srew and the oem turnbuckle(s).

Can't really measure the caster, but here's how much caster I have now

Don't have much lock since I still have stock knuckles. Also, if anyone is wondering why I don't have the dampers installed, it's because the wheels hit them. The wheels are also touching the steering wiper. I will most likely end up giving it a wider "track"
