It's a common problem to break the steering arm on the stock plastic knuckles. So these solve that first.

Secondly, these are the same shape/fitting as the stock knuckles so fit brass portal covers.
Redcat aluminium knuckles are not the same fitting so caused a compatibility issue with the aftermarket.

Third, black looks bette than silver or brass.

These are the reasons for making these.

Dealers will likely order them this week and have them next week...

So these are an exact replica of the stock knuckles, but in Aluminum? I'm asking because I already have Treal (sorry!!) brass outers, but would like to go with aluminum for the rest of the portal box.

Those are sweet looking. Might have to buy some. Has anyone had any issues?
