Question Best way to Fabricate Radius arm mounts?

What is the best way to fabricate radius arm mounts on stock SCX axles?
what about on currie axles, or rc4wd axles?

links are cool and easy and all that, but scale is where its at (for some) lets see or hear some of your ideas, thoughts, suggestions, referrals, additions, etc....

I'd guess easiest was is to braze the arms from tube, then glue all-thread inside for attaching rod ends. If you want to get real fancy, integrate turnbuckle/camber link on top for rotating axle/pinion angle. Mounting would be easy on wraith axle, regular axle needs adapter plate that might tie into a panhard mount.

If you are already brazing the arms why wouldn't you braze in the all thread?

how would you build in an isolator bushing like the 1:1 (like say a D44 on a ford)?

U could use fuel tubing, it is a little soft but works good as bushings. My radius arms got tap'ed so I can thread the rod ends in and out.

I am on a mission to find or make a better (more scale) way to mount radius arms. the tough part is that every axle mounts a little different- axial stuff, rc4wd (k44), vanquish- none of them are the same.
