    7138X Toe links, aluminum: thread size?

    I'm going to make two about an inch long rods using 7059 ends, and need something in between. Need to know the right thread size. Or maybe something ready from Towerhobbies with hollow balls fitting stock rocker arms? Couldn't find anywhere, hope someone can help, thanks.

    Ok, let's put it this way: Do the 7059 rod ends also fit shocks? They would seem to do the trick. Towerhobbies specks for "Traxxas Shaft/GTR Shock VXL" is 2.5mm for thread. Can anyone confirm that both shocks and pushrods/toelinks use the same ends? Or maybe 7059 use 3mm thread? And is longer? The shock ends I measured to be 12mm long. That would equal to 24 mm and longer...

    Change of plan. I'll cut ends from those cheap plastic rods, drill and tap 'em. Anyway, I need to 2,5 mm tap other stuff to so I have to get the tap. I'll screw up the ends all right hand, so even in theory the lenght can't change by itself. Well, thank you all so much. Your help will be rewarded abundantly.
