Default Steering knuckle?

Do the hot racing knuckles provide more steering angle than stock? do they fit stock wheels? Do vp knuckles provide more angle than hr?

I think they are about the same. I have HR knuckles now. I'm going to order the VP front knuckles soon. VP knuckes have more steeing and you can get knuckle weights. You cant use stock wheel with VP knuckles.

The HR knuckles are really close to stock. Stock wheels work the HR knuckles. I dont think I gain any steering with the HR knuckles. Sorry but I put them on in December.

HR knuckles arE basically a stock replacement knuckle. The VP knuckles will theoretically allow about 50* of steering, but several factors play into that number. Sevo horn length, steering arm length, servo EPA, tire/shock rub, etc all play a part in what is realistically attainable.

I understand that there are other factors, I had to use hex adapters to clear the shocks just to get lock to lock. Maybe I'll make some arms and mod the stock knuckles to get more angle.

some people have even filed down parts of their universal joints on the axle driveshafts to allow it to not hang up when turning uber far. wow, i wouldn't do that for fear of decreasing its strength, but very innovative.

Did you do anything to the knuckles or chubs to get that much steering? Or is that what to expect with vp stuff?
