not as good quality
So I am a machinist by trade right degree and all manual and cnc and can program so let me weigh in here while I have bought scorched parts chassis stiffener titanum imput cups 4140 hardened things like that and will not argue there quality is beautiful I'll post the cups when I get them they make amazing purpose built parts now I didn't like that there wasn't a anodized option the hubs also have a larger opening instead of the normal 5mm hex that in my opinion would be easyer to have grit in the bores for my uses not ideal it wasn't about price for me it was purpose now treal the parts I have acquired from them all the standard 7075 is top notch quality the bores are tight but not overly tight they are consistent the mill chatter I'd minimal the anodizing is beautiful and consistent the one thing I will say there surface finish on my treal parts vs m2c is better in my opinion but there is marginal differences if any on all 7075 machined parts between all companies it comes down to features at this point do u like treals red or do u prefer scorched design xyz

I like them all just pulling your leg ;) never felt the need to have aluminium pillow balls as I don't have any trouble with the stock ones. if I was into speed running maybe I would for precision

I have 4 sets of stock ones and I haven't had trouble yet but I've ate 2 sets of bearings out of them the reason for the upgrade was bigger bearings for me

yes agree with you there the bearings are too thin on the inner hubs. you would think arrma would have sorted that problem by now (y)

+1 -agreed- Machinist here. CNC mills / programmer & all manual machines 👍
 
Also ik I hijacked this and dan I'm sorry but I do like how the steering links attach to the treals it's a one piece design that does away with the whole little aluminum wing piece that's bolted on
 
Love Scorched parts, unfortunately, this is all I got in my rig. 😂

I just finished assembling the Scorched steering knuckles with titanium pivot balls. Holy moly are these things nice! I was able to dial in the perfect amount of movement in the balls with absolutely zero slop whatsoever. The Teflon coated nylon seats feel as slick as they can be while still being as snug as they need to be. I’m very impressed with these. Ready to go on the build, but…I want to keep these in pristine condition, what if they get dirty? Why don’t I have transparent wheel dishes so I’ll be able to see them? WOW, these are purty…

What rig are those for? I love!
 
@Dan B. Where is this build thread did I miss it?! Was looking forward to seeing this go!
I’ll get back to the workbench in about a week after my company leaves and gets back to their red state. 😊
But for now…
