I've tried the next longest Lunsford link (2.25") but it's the thin version, and doesn't fit with the 4.8mm ball cups that come with the kit. I have Losi XXX HD cups that work, but don't have the right size ball studs for those cups.
-Would just need a small ballstud with the same threads as the Lunsford kit ones.

I also tried the larger TLR 22 Ti links that are longer, but again, don't have the right ball cups.

I'd really like to have a longer Ti link in the rear for the reassurance of not ripping out of cups.

Anyone know if Lunsford has either longer ballcups that would fit the 210 Lunsford kit, or is there a longer Lunsford link that would work with the 4.8mm Lunsford cups?

If they're facing the front, your hubs are probably swapped.
Right on left and left on the right because if they're on the correct side and the studs faced the front of the car,
the turnbuckles would be all up in the springs.

ps, can we please stop posting these HUGE pics? LOL!

Technically, it shouldn't matter as long as the toe inserts are installed correctly..I built mine that way so the link was a little straighter, and had a little more clearance inside the wheel..

Hmm, I might have to try that then. Built the correct way, you really can't use the outer holes on the
hub because the ball cup starts to bind. Not that it matters to me since I prefer a shorter link at the moment.
But it really is a sharp angle that doesn't look right.

Are you doing that to get the camber links parallel with the axles, or what is the advantage?

It just clears everything nicer, especially running a longer link.
