Those look cool but I'm looking at trying to get some titanium tubing and make links from that.

I also got my rims in tonight from the auction for zach that I won.

Well give me 5 days off and gloomy rainy day and 8 foot piece of delrin. I started to make the links for it.

I wanted to try use titanium for the links but the spot I saw it at last is gone.

Well my link tube just came in today. 3AL-2.5V titanium


This with 8/32 threaded rod through it. Kinda crappy pic but it fills the tube. So I can use Revo ball ends instead of tmaxx.

Forgive my ignorance, Where did you get the 3AL-2.5V titanium tube at?
Was it from FleaBay?

Here is one link that I made. Takes alot longer to cut the tube with a tubing cutter than brake line.

I also need to go get more rod ends today.

What size is that tubing... O.D. and I.D. if you have it.

I assume the O.D. is 1/4 inch?

Well I did it finished making all the links out of the titanium that I bought. I ordered 36 inches but they sent me 48" I have almost 22" left. So I think all of my other rigs will be getting the titanium treatment also.

Well here is some pics of all the links done.

That came out real nice. It's one of the best looking Hustlers I've seen. I wonder who got the blue one Double J powder coated? He did this one as well right?
