Speaking of side links ... V2's are on my wish list .. or at least sell them in a 10 pack.

i don't want to say anything to jinx myself -- but there is something special going on at your track. must be a lot of slide slapping -- and blown out bearings.

another option is to build a set of links using rod ends and a tie rod (think speed merchant)

It must be the Colorado dryness, because this is not unique to just our track...The side links are crap and they need to be fixed. I am sure we are just a bunch of bashers compared to you pro drivers. Unfortunately, you cannot replace them with another brand like you can the steering blocks and axles.

It may in fact be unique to us, but it is sure happening a lot more often then I would expect. I can say this...since I stopped running 1/12th scale I have stopped breaking them .

I am glad no one else is having issues, but I cannot say the same for all of the TOPs at our track. Hard to promote a car that breaks...plain and simple.

honestly i don't think any car is prefect out of the box -- especially the first edition. all in all -- the Rebel 12 is pretty amazing.

if i where breaking links i'd HIGHLY recommend putting together side links with lunsford turnbuckles + basically whatever rod end + ball you like (just make sure all four are the same). this is _the_ way link cars started (remember the Speedmerchant/CRC Carpet Knife?). you could use dubro parts like speed merchant (std screws), losi type-r rod ends and balls (or CRC light weight balls) (std screws) or just use TOP Photon balls and rod ends (metric screws).

building side links is pretty easy -- and the large center football makes the adjustment easy even if they aren't 100% the same length. we made a replacement link for Larry this way once when he got the Rebel 12 before there where instructions or spare parts.

I use the associated links. They are a lot beefier.

Same length, just have to use their ball stud's and put a little bit bigger screw in them.
