I have had these knuckles for a bit now but haven't got to put many packs threw them because it won't stop raining here.

They are great because they will be available in brass, delrin and aluminum and the same knuckle can be used on 8* or 0* C's.

Here are some shitty pics for now.

New brass knuckle



Cast bully knuckle with 3 12mm bearings and Dlux knuckle weight



Usable steering angle.



Ransoms

It's about time you show that sexiness . I placed a order with Erik for the brass ones also just to gain some more weight up front . My aluminum are really light I'll powdercoat my brass ones to keep from tarnessing . Looks good man !

Thanks. Do you know how much you Al knuckles weigh? The weight of my brass ones is without the four slugs Erik send. I'll have to weigh them. I don't have any rings to put on mine right now so I only have the knuckle for weight. I also have 2 sets of delrin knuckles for my super and they have a skateboard bearing for the inner bearing! Crazy big! Haha. Without that heavy ass bearing they are super light for the guys trying to stay light.

Steering angle looks great! I also didnt realize that I had that much more steering angle to get.

Looks like the Brass setup isnt too far off from the Bully knuckle and weight. I had my weight cut in half too so I bet this setup is actually a touch heavier.

Its nice to see this thread back at the top!

We've been sunny, dry and 75 for so long I'm sick of it.

I want rain.

I wouldn't be sad if the next place we move is Southern California. I am not a big fan of the cold.

Don't want to hear it. It has been raining unseasonably here. We were 4 degrees Last week and reached 64 Saturday. It's a nightmare if you have sinus problems.

The grass is greener where it rains but SD weather is ideal for crawling year round...so I should shut up now.

I was about to tell you the same. Next your going to complain about how close all the awesome rock is and how too many people show up to the comps and you have to wait in lines

Poor Joel, I'm really sorry.

Ya, the rock situation is so bad here. It's gotten to the point that I have dreams about driving on good rock! Haha No joke!

The closet comps are either Miami, about 4.5hrs, or NC/TN at around 6.5hrs. Now that I'm back in school I really don't have the time or cash for a drive like that. I'm hoping I can make it up to NC or TN this summer for at least one comp on natural rock instead of riprap.

It was finally a nice day here and having the day off gave me a chance to go to a new spot on the gulf I found. It is one of the best spots I have found here in Florida and it's only about an hour away!



The knuckles are working awesome! The steering is just insane with the combo of the knuckles and Dlux front shafts What a great combination for sure! I am trying more knuckle weight and am at 5oz per side which is all the weights I have at the moment. It worked great, the only thing I noticed that will take some getting used to is when digging with the tires turned all the way the rear tires will actually end up back from where they started. The tire isn't just pivoting around. The tire doesn't turn backward but the jerking of the truck when you blip-blip-blip with the throttle caused it to rotate on the outside tire thus the inside tires slides backwards. Like I said, it wouldn't result in a reverse because the tire never rotates but imagine I will have to be aware of it in some situations? Maybe when close to a boundary?

It's crazy to see, I'll see if I can get a video of it?

This skid rocks!!!! It stiffens the chassis so much and it weighs exactly the same as my old skid.

Old skid. It did look cool!




New skid



I also got some more knuckle weight rings and am now sitting with exactly 4 lbs even with 6.75 oz of knuckle weight per side.

I am surprised that old skid still looks good after so much abuse.

Youre going to love that skid I tell ya. Much abuse on mine so far and I still cant feel a scratch.

I am always entertained by the speed of which your new parts make it on your car. Reminds me of myself.
