What length of time do you guys get before your shoes are worn down???

Thanks

I've been reading thru these and have read several pages but not all so I may have missed the answer to what I'm about to ask. I'm looking for a company that makes a no pop off ball for the front turn steering turn buckle. I don't have anything but the stock RTR ones on my 8ight buggy but I bought a second hand 8ight-T and it has them already installed on it. I'm trying to upgrade the buggy ones as this is a problem I have run into during a race and it looks like such an easy fix. Also, I'm looking for a 140 oz + quick response steering servo for both my buggy and Truggy. I need it to be able to be used with the spectrum system. I'm presently using JR 650's on them now. I like the JR 9000t but would like to find something a little less expensive than $115 and yet still a durable and not so difficult servo to be able to get. Hoping someone here can at least give me some good suggestions to consider.

the No pop balls are found here.....and for a servo.....Just spend the 100$ and ull NEVER have to worry about it blowing up and having the hassle's of trying to find ANOTHER servo when the cheeeper one blows.

Agreed with Integra and Cman. The CRC (Calandra racing concepts) no-pop balls are good. Another alternative is the 6.8mm double flanged steering balls from Kyosho. One of my racing buddies has been using them with no issues. They are pretty much the same as the CRC part but black oxide.

Use the same ball as the opposite end of your steering tie rod... The end that connects to your steering post, is a hollow ball, screw goes all the way through. I just used that same ball, used a convex washer and shimmed it up so it wouldnt put anything in a bind when suspension arm travels upward... easy fix and you probably have the parts in your box already

Thanks, I called my LHS and they had the CRC no-pop offs in stock! All I needed was a part # for them to look that one up. As for the servo. Thanks for the input. when the time comes I'll invest in $100 servo's but for now JR-650z will just have to do the trick. I can pick them up for $42 each and they can handle what I need for now. When and if they do go I'll look into the hitech's or the JR 9000t and s ones. Hopefully the new Spektrum radio will fix my problem of burning out steering servo's on my monstor truck. I've burnt up a associated 2008s, two spektrum-590m's and two JR 650z. I've reset the end points on the reciever three times and now the LHS finally admits I may be having reciever issues. Wouldn't admit it when it was new but at least they did make me a deal on a new transmitter and Reciever with servo's so hopefully we have the problem solved. Pretty bad when I've burnt up five steering servo's on a truck that only pulls in a straight line! , LOL
