Looks good man...for the links you are half way there. What size threaded rod are you uisng? Depending on the size you could cut some 1/4" breakline to fit over them. I used 8/32nd threaded rod with 1/4" breakline. Worked great! :wink:

That's great I am glad you got it. Truck is coming along. Good trade! I really like those shock mounts on the chassis rails!

the threaded rod is way to big and cant screw all the way into the ball ends. so none of them are strong enough to really run with.

so coming plans

-EVX speed control
-complete re wire
-polish any of the raw alum. with autosol
-alum shocks.
-sway bars

but right now. lets go for running 8)

Looking good! Try using the Traxxas long ball ends usde for the Revo. You have more plastic to thread into. You will have a tough time pulling the rod out of them...

Your Bull has come a long way. Lookin' good! I just had a vision... imagine if Dennis Anderson actually took his Grave Digger rock crawling? Or for that matter, the producers of Monster Jam actually included a rock crawling track! :twisted:
