Hello Crawlers,

I am trying DIY my own links for the SCX10. So far got my hands on the all-thread M6 rod locally and bought the traxxas ball ends from ebay.
Anyone know where I can buy the Aluminum hollow tubes about 6mm inner diameter to sleeve the threaded M6 rods?
Cant find one at local hardware shop till now.

Was tempted to just use the link as exposed threads.

no need to use the alu tubes. just leave it exposed as some of the bros here did.
u can also use heat shrinks to cover.

Ok thanks bro. I think I will leave 'em exposed too.
Not sure if the heat shrink will cause it to be sticky and stuck on rocks etc.. lol..

Hi, most of us use M3 or M4 threaded rod with aluminum or carbon sleeve. The sleeves can be found at LHS such as jethobby Ubi, rcs and ntc at Fook Hai Building.

Since you are using M6 which is relatively thick, you can just leave it exposed (take note thread will cause some friction against obstacles) or sleeve it with shrink tube like Oceanic mentioned. Smile

Thanks for your suggestions. I am stuck with my 2m of M6 rod.. Will do the heatshrinking as advised..
BTW M6 seems like an ideal diameter for inserting into the drive shaft (with just a bit of screwing in effort) to prevent pretzeling of the stock drive shaft.. Smile
