SRB front suspension replacements

Recommended Posts

I'm not an RC expert at all. I've had this beat up Super Champ since my brother bought it back in the early 80s. In 2014, I modernized it with some spare RC parts my friends gave me.
It's sat in a box in storage until yesterday when I unboxed it (video below).
Sadly, last night while I let my 12 year old play with it, a front lower control arm disappeared in the grass 🙁
I'm hoping to get a newer SRB front end as mine is totally knackered anyway. I notice Tamiya USA still sells the new lower fronts (but not uppers) from the 2014 rerelease. If I get those and the modern ball cups will that fix it? I think someone mentioned I'd need to change the balls on the front stub axles that go into the ballcups to a 5mm?
