I've read alot about hop up parts for the M-05 but I can't find a good turnbuckle that would be able to replace the screw B12 attached to the Steering Link (step 10)

Any one have an idea or experimented something good for this?

I was suggested the TRF #42116 turnbuckle but getting some info about it resulted that they are 2mm shorter and they are used on TAs, TBs, and 415 sway bars...

Are they any good for M-05 ?
Other suggestion ?

One lat note, they must be TCS legal, so no 3racing stuff please

Tamiya makes an adjustable turnbuckle kit for the M05, I forgot the part number though, but it's only for the rear camber and steering "toe" linkage. The front camber link stays fixed.

It's the same type of screw.

No way to adjust in one quick turnbuckle wrenching.

i can't think of any turnbuckle that would work for this...the gap between the ballends are around 1mm or less - depending on the camber you're running, and I can't think of anything that would have that narrow of an adjuster

A chrome M03 chassis, I now want to get a brand new M03 kit and build it up as a shelf queen.

These look super cool when they're built, with my Silver M-03R I used the matte silver Fiat 500 rims to keep with the silver theme.

It does look very cool just in bits, I won't be using just a nice looking shelf queen.

The chrome parts are weaker than the std black parts from experience.
