I have a question regarding the MR03 Low Down Knuckles:

http://www.kenonhobby.com/PN-Racing-Mini-Z-MR03-Aluminum-Low-Down-Knuckle-Orange_p_42989.html

-Where is the 0.7mm taken off of? The top/bottom/both?
-Is the height of the axle pin moved?

I just want to know exactly how these are different from the stock MR03 knuckles.

Thanks,

BlackBerry

The pin position higher 0.7mm. so it is low down 0.7mm.

The pin position higher 0.7mm. so it is low down 0.7mm.

So then the pre-load is not affected then? The overall knuckle has the same height as a stock one?

If that's so you might want to change your website's description. It actually states: "Pre load down 0.7mm".

Thanks for the quick reply,

AFAIK the knuckle has the same stack height as stock, just the pin has been moved upwards to lower the car.

I have wondered this because when you combine the low down knuckles with the 1 degree upper arms there seems to be quite a bit of slop in the front suspension. To the point there if you don't put any shims in it the front springs can and do fall out. Does anyone else have this problem?

I will post pictures for reference when I am at my box.

I made a new thread as to not detract from the answer in this thread.
