Carisma SCA-1E V2 alloy & carbon steering knuckle set
Carisma Scale Adventure have introduced their new V2 alloy and carbon fibre steering knuckle set for the SCA-1E trail trucks. When progressing from trail running to full on rock crawling, often a rig’s limiting factors aren’t its articulation, or the grip its tyres can generate, or even its weight bias. Approach angle, break over angle and departure angle have a more direct effect on what it can crawl up, over and away from. Carisma have therefore developed and field tested a new high clearance alloy and carbon fibre V2 steering knuckle, offering 17.5 mm more forward clearance to the steering link, and additionally raising it 9.2 mm higher than the stock RTR or kit steering knuckles. This improves the rig’s approach angle, lifts the steering link above the centreline of the front axles diff housing, and still allows good steering deflection and steering throw.
