Or you can order a set of Lunsford titanium LST2 turnbuckles and call it a day. They work beautiful.

With luck I'll be collecting mine from my LHS latter this week, and that's in the UK so I assume it'll be the same time in the US.

i called Assoc. today and Don told me that they have been in stock for a bit at the distrib's. My guess is all the major shops want to sell the LE's and regular rc8ts out first because they will never get rid of them after tey have the CE's on sale for the same or less price lol i just bought a zo1t to race this season

Tower Hobbies had them in stock "limited stock" for a sometime today. I was able to get one. Then, I checked again and the status changed to "order pending". Very Lucky!
