Default 2.0 camber links

i just got a new 2.0 buggy and have two race weekends on it. my problem is that the front camber link ends keep pushing in. i've repaced 4 of them, it doesn't cause me to drop out, but it gives me big time negetive camber. it's frustrating. are any of you guys having this problem? if so, what did you do to fix it?

and yes i tried a search, but way too many treads to go threw.

i never had this problem with my 1.0 buggys.

thanks.

the problem is that the losi turnbuckles are cut then coated. when the coating goes on it rounds off the top edge of the thread so that the slip easy if you take a big hit

i changed to the lunsford turnbuckles and it fixxed the problem
others have simply changed back to the 8ight 1 turnbuckles and ball ends

Hi!

Messure the outer diameter of the turnbuckle. I know that Drake has answered that question in another thread wiith: the outer diameter on some turnbuckles was to small and it was changed.

i forget the part number but the kyosho ends work fine. in certain situations iv used 1.0 turnbuckles altogether. surprised more people havnt seen this issue. it happens to everybody eventually with the 2.0

i'm thinking of going with the lundsford turnbuckles. $30.00 to swap them over to the 1.0 setup, but tower hobbies sent me a $20.00 off any $50.00 order, and they have the complete lunsford set for the 2.0 that will come to $36.00 after i take the $20.00 off. seems like a no brainer to me.

just want to make sure that knowbody is having issues with the lundsford 4mm turnbuckles.

thanks for the input guys.
