    Is this aluminium toe link adjustable in length?

    I spoke to the guy from the local hobby shop seeking advice on making the back wheels straight. He suggested using an adjust toe link might fix the problem.

    I looked up online and found this part. Can anyone tell me whether it is adjustable as no descriptions found.

    that is adjustable


    however, you can adjust camber and toe using the stock stuff.... tightening or loosening the pillow balls will allow adjustments to camber and toe on a stock vehicle

    The 7138x is a good upgrade!when setting your alignment rpm's toe in and camber tools are the hot setup

    I didn't like those links, the threads would rip right out. switched to the GPM ones, they're much better but I've still managed to break an end simply because they are weak little plastic ends.

    Thanks, sorry to be a pain. Are you able to send me a link of where you purchased yours from?

    ebay!!



    shows an aluminum end that I would be much happier with if:

    it was shorter
    it was better quality (a few I got were loose fitting and sloppy side to side)
    they had right hand and left hand threads. because of this you can only fit them to one side of each link

    you can see how thin the plastic is on the gpm end. it developed an oval shape before finally letting go.

    My dream: somebody makes a fully adjustable aluminum toe link that offers long thread contact, easy adjustability and good quality

    Your saying the traxxas threads rip right out?
    Never had a problem with them. Even with 50 mph cartwheels

    The GPMs are a bit harder to adjust, I use a right angle body clip. they use a cumbersome hole drilled through the shaft instead of a hex.
