I used Traxxas links, part number 5538. They are for a Jato. They were used for the upper and lower links. I am trying them tomorrow and will post good or bad!

What does that give you for a final WB?

The wb is at 10 inches the way it sits. It's still a little short, but I am just using it to bash with!

With the Axial links, did you have to lengthen your motor and servo leads? I am using the stock esc and motors and would probably have to do so.

We have a new set of aluminum bent links that are direct replacements for the stock plastic links. These are 3-7/8" eye-to-eye and each link includes the rod ends as shown

You sparked my interest. Where are they at in your store Brett and how much do they run? Links please or some sort of info on how much and where on the store they are to obtain them.

They're actually brand new as of today (along with some Losi MRC bent links), so they're not on our site yet.

Click the link below for pricing details in our thread in the vendors section:
