I used B4 turnbuckles on mine...I had to trim the steering ones just a little, but they work great. The Associated parts are blue if that means anything to you.

I guess for me it comes down to which ones you can get easier...and maybe the cost.

What I did..... was the local hobby shop here has individual Lunsford Turnbuckles. So I brought in the stock ones and matched them up. Also www.towerhobbies.com has Lunsford in 2 packs for 11.29 a pack and you can get an exact set that way.

That would be kinda pricey...the B4 set I got was $20 for all 6.

Here it is at Tower for $21.99.

Call Lunsford Racing. I worked with them on putting together a kit that includes the 6 turnbuckles (four 2" and two 1-5/8"). It should be cheaper than buying the two-packs because those come with rod ends and complete sets are always cheaper. They were supposed to update their website with the part number. I called them three times to remind them (last time was two weeks ago...lol ).

Blasterman456, I'm surprised none of these guys have mentioned this yet, so I guess I will. If you look further down the front page of the electric/nitro off-road forum (maybe it is on the second page now, but it'll be back on the front page soon when the summer season comes to a close) there is a thread called "Kyosho electric off-road". There is a wealth of knowledge about the ZX-5 in there from setup tips to aftermarket hop up parts. Anything you need to know about the car will be in there for sure... just for future referrence.
