    Protect hollow balls from rust

    Does anyone know if if ya can get hollow balls made from another material other than steel.
    Mine have all rusted and they are really stiff and hardly move in the toelink or push rod rod ends.

    If ya can't get them in any other material that won't rust does anyone have any suggestions on keeping them free from rust.
    wouldn't be able to fix them now they have rusted but i have some new pushrods and toelinks coming so i was wondering if you can somehow protect the hollow ball in them.

    You can get them in aluminum and pretty much whatever color you want. Many of the comp crawler guys utilize traxxas rod ends so you can thank them. Or a little post run oil should fix your problem.
