Knuckles and Brakes and Bearings...

...OH MY!

Sorry. Couldn't help it.

Anyway, I'm possibly scoring a set of PT knuckles with turbo rotors and calipers for cheap. My only hesitation is that they're from a 2001 PT, so the bearings are likely the 33mm variety. I know the later version is wider and supposedly stronger (which makes sense), but first gens have been doing great on tracks with the smaller bearings for years (lots of Lemons and dirt track cars). Kind of makes me think the bearing width might not make much of a difference.

Anyone have track experience with the smaller bearing?
