    Which VXL turnbuckles?

    Hey Guys,

    I guess 3745 for the front and rear. But which one for the steering?

    Thanks!

    Daniel.

    The steering links are already metal and adjustable stock.

    VXL links are just steel adjustable links just like what is already on the Telluride.

    I know, but they are smaller in diameter... I just like the way the ones from the VXL look, I'm not saying the other ones don't work or there's anything bad with them...

    Is that 59mm eye to eye, or the length of the metal link?

    daniel, I see the need to beef them up in certain situations. They are thin like my xl5 pede links, and are no where near as durable. But... I do see them as adequate and no real need to upgrade them on a vehicle that has stockish speeds(<20mph).

    What do you have planned?

    I'm building one up from scratch, and decided to use VXL turnbuckles, as simple as that... I don't usually but my trucks RTR, 90% of my fleet was build from chop shops on eBay so I can customize parts as I like... No hidden agenda here...

    LOL I'm going to customize it, but nothing expensive...

    Guys, before I buy them, could someone please confirm if 59mm is eye to eye on the stock setup on *all* links?

    Thanks!

    I have ~80mm eye to eye on the steering. Though I may have messed with them

    With all of the links removed from one side of my Telluride this is what I come up with:

    Front camber link: stock length is...........75 mm c/c ........... 71 mm +/- 4 mm will work
    Front steering link: stock length is......... 80 mm c/c ........... 76 mm +/- 4 mm will work
    Rear camber link: stock length is........... 65 mm c/c ........... 61 mm +/- 4 mm will work

    c/c = center to center of the eyes on each side of a link.

    ***NOTE*** The factory mounting location for the front and rear camber links is the hole closest to the diff on the top row of
    holes and with a total of 5 mounting locations, there is an 8 mm window to work with.


    Hope this helps.

    Well, I was not going to buy them but got them for free... So, c/c this is what I got with a caliper:

    * Rear camber link 65,5.mm
    * Front camber link 72,5mm

    For these two, you can use these links #3644, #3737, #3737A... Those are the front/rear from the Slash...

    * Front steering 80mm

    For this one you can use these links #3643, #3738, #3738A... Those are the rear from the Rustler...

    But, for the front steering links, Traxxas offers 3745, 3139X, 3139A, which are 78mm with short rod ends...

    I prefer the ones I mentioned which are 82mm with long rod ends, you just need to adjust them to 80mm...

    If anyone has another idea, please, let us know...
