You can also buy plastic nuts and just tread them on the turnbuckles. This way you dont need a reverse treat nut and its lighter and cheaper.

Thanks,

I also got longer tie rods - when screwed all the way in the toe is at -1.5. I can adjust to -2 (my usual) but if I tap a board the most it's going to move to is -1.5 or so. Not a huge difference. The only real way it can go is more toe IN and that's fairly hard to get (have to hit the front of the wheel. . .not much chance of that)

It solved my problem completely.

well,I just added Lunsford turnbuckles in the rear.....used RPM cups from RPM(not the ones from associated,made by rpm)..


Took 3 mm collars from Kyosho(KC-18)..and drilled them out with a 9/64 drill..these are nice 'cause you can use 2 allens in each one..

I can't see how this set up could ever compress.....

This would be a GREAT idea. Anyway you can find out the size of the collars? Do you need to drill a hole for hex screw?
Anyone knows towerhobbies has that?

Thanks

I found DU-BRO carries many different sizes of Collars. Here is the link below, which size would be good fit for rear tie rod?

Hey Harry! I see you're out defending our car again! I tried to convince Bob and Jason we needed to work this issue, maybe with a set of solid, non-adjustable links that bolt in place. You know, a set of 1, 1.5, 2, etc, but maybe the collar idea is the best cheap, easy fix for this problem anyway. I've always complained that they're designing these cars based on pro driver input and not making them tough enough for us bashers!

these collars are fine...

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXV422&P=7


the dubros only have one set screw hole..these have two(that will REALLY hold them)...all you have to do is drill them out(and its only a little amount) with a 9/64 drill bit...2 3mm allen screws per collar,and your good to go...






NOW,how about THIS idea....


A couple of 44 mm Lunsford 4mm turnbuckles with some PRO LINE Tmaxx captured ball ends......

won't move..and won't pop off...
