    I bought a bag of parts from a racer and i have all the nuts and bolts for it and im wondering do i really need the ballstud washer ? Can i just install the rack without the ballstud washer and just the bolt though the knuckle like stock ?

    I'm not sure what you are asking? Are you referring to the ballstud that connects to the steering link and knuckle? The washer from what I understand is to adjust bump steer. So adding them would affect the bump steering. This pic is from the old RC8B...

    The ball stud that connects to the steering knuckle like in the pic looks like i dont really need it on my RC8TCE . How does the swing rack work on a smooth sweeping track ?

    To me, and this is just me, I like it better. It doesn't feel as twitchy and it seems smoother to me. Let me know how you like it.
