Keep an eye on your alloy knuckles - I used alloy knuckles on my Dagger and they bent within about 5 minutes of use. They're just TL01 parts and most manufacturers didn't bother making them strong enough to withstand the punishment they'll take from big wheels. If you've got some from a proper company who makes proper parts then please post the brand so I know where to go for better ones :D

Think the knuckles were GMP, is that what yours were?

Mine are fine at the mo' but ive still got to give her a good thrashing!

It might be worth havin a look at junfac.com, there parts are prety sturdy, not sure if they do knuckles for td though!

Works just fine, and reasonably priced too!

Alright guys?

Hope everyone is well! Long time no speak. Need a question answered. I drove my TD in the snow a while ago then put it near the radiator to dry off. It must be about 4months later and when I came ot play with it again I noticed loads of the screws and the dog bones had rust on them! Has this happened to anyone else before and if so what did you do to combat it and prevent it in the future?

Any help please,

Pav

I know, rust staines on the body shell suck!

Your gonna have to upgrade my friend!

The good news is it aint gonna cost a fortune!

What u need: Bag of m3 screws, stainless or galvanised,

: alloy dog bones,

This can probably be done for around £12

Good luck,
