How to upgrade the rear linkage on an sc10.2 and sc10b

I broke a ballstud in the main event the other day and I performed an upgrade the make sure that never happens again. In order to perform the upgrade, you need to get the correct parts! OC/RC had everything I needed.
You will need some HD ball studs #91050, some HD ball cups #91051, and some HD 65mm turnbuckles #91038. Also, you will need some M3 locknuts #25215. The locknuts are not in the picture.

You can clearly see that the new ballstuds are much larger! Make sure you do not forget to put a nut on the back of the ballstud you screwed into the hub carrier.
When you are screwing in the new ballstuds, be sure to screw in a few threads, and then back out a few threads. Repeat this process until the ballstud snugs up all the way down, just like the stock ballstuds do.

This is what the finish upgrade looks like once you are all done. I must say, the feeling of the rear linkage after the upgrade is amazing! The turnbuckle no longer rubs on the shock spring! Try it out for yourself and hopefully you will stop breaking that pesky rear linkage.

Good luck at the races! Remember, you can always ask me for help, just look for the KLA cars at the track.
