We used to do that back in the 80's 12th scale days to make the bearings roll easier--even run them without any shields!

I found out from Tamiya that they are Ti. Plus they would be TCS legal.

Is it titanium ? I doubt it after seeing the price...

As far as another brand I would say the take off cs 32 would be close

I sent an email asking what the turnbuckles were made out of and the response that I got from Tamiya was that they were Titanium.

if you need a 3 x 42 Ti turnbuckle there is only one kit I know that had one, The EVO III Surikarn and the part # is 2520040. They are sold in singles

The steering links are 3x23. That's why I was interested in those turnbuckles.

I like Ti. I personally wouldn't put alum. for a steering link. I tend to bend things. I also want to stay TCS legal. As long as the response that I got from Tamiya is correct then I should be set.
