Was just looking through blogs and saw the newest post by Team Origin driver Fukuyama. I guess from Round2 of D1SL cut/welded knuckles are no longer allowed. No more of this:


and more of this


Interesting move by D1 but it doesn’t surprize me. Everyone will be buying the GP ones now however…good for GP

Thats odd…why ban it?

Interesting indeed.
Has there been crashes caused by the welds breaking in the pass or something ?

Simba…no I didnt ahaha

Other guys, i dont think anyone was broken and even if they did its not that bad..just like breaking a tie rod. But I think it stems from the fact that d1sl cars have to pass shakken (bi annual car inpection) and cut knuckles dont pass this inspection. They are still fine in D1 iirc.
