Would love to find something! We always have spares laying around because they're constantly breaking.

I looked at a set of RPM steering blocks from a 2WD slash, but the arms seem really short and guy at the local hobby shop said the steering would be messed up.

Now that I think about it though, it shouldn't be too much of a concern. Maybe a stronger servo would be in order.

Yeah, after I posted that I went in and looked at our 2wd slash, the steering arms are really short which would affect the front end end pretty good unless accounted for in servo saver / horn assembly.
Just to complete my weekend of fail, pretty sure I just burned up the Titan 12t in the slash...
Of course, the brushless esc's I've been waiting for just arrived

Those look like they might work... Too bad my lhs is closed today.

You might have to buy the c-hubs too. Not sure. I know my e-firestorm parts look really close to my ruckus parts.

They look like they'd work, but would they be any better? They look almost identical.

One of the member who used to owned a ruckus, used the rear hub carrier as the steering block and he said it never broke again. He had this in his 72mph ruckus

Like @ratrod said, Blitz will most likely work. But they have 2 types. Theres "regular" ones and inline ones and the inline one requires some sort of spacers. Not really positive... I myself am gonna try the "regular" ones soon with blitz c-hubs and if they work, S.t. Racing has some awesome aluminum upgrades

My bad for not searching first, I did find the older Ruckus threads just now... Looks like the blitz parts work, with a small mod. I was looking for rpm upgraded ones, but they only seem to sell the inline ones.
Still searching for info on gabbing the rear bearing carriers for use as steering blocks.
