    Protrac steering link length for pede

    What is the length of the steering link itself (no ball ends) that you guys are using for the protrac suspension? I am trying to match up some blue titanium links for my diamondback build. Got the cambers from associated, but need to know the length of the longer steering links. Thanks for any help...

    70mm is what comes with the kit, but I always thought they were a bit short on the pede. I know AE offers a pair of some ti 73mm's for a decent price.

    I know, but the pede does not have a bel crank. So the length will be much more than 73.

    The 70's that come with the kit do work tho. The thing about Protrac'ing Slashes and Rustlers is that they use the shorter rod ends. Pede's use the Jato ends so it works fine. I just always thought my steering links had a little too much thread showing.

    You definitely have to use the Pede rod ends for the Protrac links to work properly. If you have a Slash or Rusty then you would use those rod ends.

    So the long pede vxl rod ends on a protrac toe link? Cool.

    Yes. The rod ends for the toe/steering links are correct. The camber links are all the same. So to clarify, the Rusty/Slash use shorter rod ends due to the bell crank steering and the Pede uses longer rod ends due to the servo saver. Hope this helps.
