well, I bought 2 sets of carriers for the Radline...
they sure LOOK exactly the same, but they are VERY different.
The only thing that keeps them from working is well... everything.
They are too far offset from the center of the car, and want to tug the dogbones out of the outdrives...
the little arm on the upright that attaches to the steering link is too wide, and rubs on the rim...
the c-hub does not come with all the hardware needed to install the upright :|
and the steering setup is completely different, and was totally effed up when I tried to fix it.
I even tried just removing the dogbone alltogether and making it a Rwd, but the tires rubbing prevented this...
$13 later, and a set of Redcat replacements are on the way.
It was only an $8 mistake, so it was not THAT bad.
I will keep the Radlines around.
If I ever break some dogbones, I will buy some Radline dogbones (they are longer), and Radline rims to fit, so I can utilize my 2 sets of parts haha
Just kinda bummed...
2 sets of Radline replacements + shipping = $8.50
1 set of Redcat replacements + shipping = $13.75
