Default ball stud problem

yeah...if you go to a hardware store you can get a 3mm tap.. ( make sure you get the right size drill for the tap)... I cant remember the exact drill size.. then just hand tap it... What I did was just put a 3 mm screw through and used a little loctite.. I know i told you a bigger ball stud on my last post.. I was trying to remember how I did it exactly.. you have to get the right length of screw so it doesnt rub on the drive shaft.. the Jato tie rod would work good.. its really tough.. I think I used a revo tie rod.. Once I did all this I never had a problem... hope this helps.. if you have any more questions.. just let me know.. I will keep checking this thread..

Try Traxxas part #5538 61mm rod length. I use these on my truck which is a converted XXX-T MF1, using the rear plastic XXX-cr buggy hubs.
I also use a 4-40 3/4 inch counter sunk screw and 3 washers at the hubs. Works great, but still check and make sure they are tight.
Hope this helps.
