could i use the flat 'ball cup' end that is used for the sway bar ends as the ends of my camber links. they are open to allow the use of a alen driver on the top of the ball cup. are they strong enough to use as steering links?

I have been using them as you say for years, they work great for me, never had a problem with them coming off or getting loose. Its nice real nice having the allen headed ball studs also, makes for quick and easy camber height adjustment. I even just unscrew the ball studs instead of popping the link off when changing the diffs.

Does anybody know what the purpose of the lower rear tower seen on Chris Grainger's car in the Euro's picture?? Is it a standard tower or a Masami rear tower? also looks like there is a lower tower on the front as well???

Thanks

The top screws are countersunk and they are much closer to the top edge of the shock mount than standard, compare it to to your own car and you will see, front looks similar to the rear.

I see a couple of pics of drive shafts with blades on, I need to know what spool and drive shafts work together.

Ive got some alloy rear diff halves but after the spool Im to scared to use them.
Ive been using the Team Bomber spool from RC Mart and its been great.No signs of wear and it cames with some blades.
Im using it on my Scythe but its for the SD/BD

Definately not cyclone steering but the CGM steering arms with the backs cut off - gives better steering.

I'm using the Yokomo alloy spool with TiR front driveshafts. You need to keep lubing the driveshaft ends with muchmore joint grease.

With the alloy diff halves I would advise buying some corally blades and filing the slots out to 2.5mm to accept them. You can run without and just keep lubing the ends. But personally I'd buy the blades and file the diff halves, they are not cheap after all!

Chris is the biggest tart, both the towers have been dremelled to give the appearance of lowered and the top holes countersunk to reduce the chance of tweaking the cars.

The steering is the CGM version we are using now.

We do not use the Masami tower.

Those are Cyclone c-hubs... knuckles look Yokomo though, and yes the CGM steering posts too.

Stuart

It's just a white RW spur gear dyed black. (Refer back to John's statement about Chris being a tart)
