Steering link and stabilizer: Treal


3D Printed:
Front Inner Fenders: Thingiverse
Rear Inner Fenders: Thingiverse
Trunk: Thingiverse

Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions!

First of all, welcome!

But unfortunately, I've got nothing good to say about the Treal links. I got them for mine and I've already replaced them with Vanquish Incision links. The difference in slop between the two was night and day.

Hello! Are you talking about the Treal steering link and stabilizer? Or upper and lower links that you have had problems with? Thanks!

Upper and lower links. Not sure if the steering links I had were Treal or not, I'd never seen them before (I picked up my Wraith used). The Vanquish links were pricey, but man, this thing is solid as a rock now, worth every penny

You will eventually have problems with any link like those in the pic, either steering tie rod or drag link, or any suspension link, that has those captured ball ends with the brass retainer rings.
Treal, Integy, Boom, GPM, HR, they'll all do it in the end
That goes for any shock using them also.
The retainers eventually wear loose in the aluminium link & the pivot balls develop bad slop in the linkages.

Any solid rod link, stainless or titanium as preference, with M4 thread on ends, most often using Traxxas Revo ends, is far superior in the long run.

This is good information, where could I find those links? Have any specific place you reccomend? Thanks again!

Oh okay, I got the upper/lower links from a friend, not sure of the brand. I only have metal front lowers installed right now.

As posted above Vanquish / Incision
SSD & Samix do some also

I have several variants for the RC4x4 Stainless links too & never had an issue with any

Avoid anything that has only M3 ends to suit stock Axial rod ends, they're well known to be not as durable as the M4.

Thank you for the info. My roommate has those with the M3 ends and they strip often, that is why I avoided them in the first place. I might have to check out the M4 though.
