***UPDATED***
Don't order these, they won't work for TLT.
I don't know what I was thinking when I ordered them.

cant get them for $20 shipped from rcmart anymore.

http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/product_info3.php?cPath=595_744_720&products_id=17 019 are real hub carriers.

I ordered a set of the blue ones I was linked too, only ones instock, and I know they will work with no mods. Thanks for the help.

Seems as though all the cheapies have been discontinued eh?

Anyone know if any of the other knuckle setups from other cars might work? Theres alot of different styles out there that look pretty similar.

These are for the DF-03 (I don't which car that is) but they look like they would bolt right up. $10.90 a set, but still $3 cheaper than the others

$20.77 shipped for all four.

I'll post up after I get them in my hands.
I hope these work out, but those are rear knuckles, and they look like the hub area is too narrow.....

:-(

Those look like they would need the two ears on the backside cutoff or it seem like they would bind on the axles housing when you turned

Businesses can buy them directly from the yeahracing website in quantities of ten. Anyone have a business here and wanna make some extra dough? I'd be down for 4 sets of 2 if the pprice is right.

Cant just make up a business name like your ordering from any other website that requires one?

If so, some one with a vendors star should jump on it. Its not worth $100 for me to do it, I wouldnt make enough to pay for the star.

Thats why we would need sevral people to buy these, assuming they are still around $6 there would be about 50 sets of these unless we ordered other parts and pieces aswell.

Ok guys, I was approved through there verification thing. The knuckles are a minimum order of ten pairs (enough for 5 trucks total).

As mentioned above though, theres a minimum first time order of $300.

I'd be down to buy a vendors star and sell through the vendors section but only if theres some interest in there products.

I wa salso able to contact a wholesaler whos interested in sselling in bulk as well, just wants to know the quantities I'd be interested in

I will have to wait and see if my order is still going to go through with RCMART, if not, I want 2 sets (1 Truck) worth. I will hopefully know soon, I emailed them to ask and havent gotten a response yet. I have my finger ready to hit the dispute transaction on my credit card statement, so I will find out in a couple days whats going on.
