This calculator will help you pick the perfect setup for your RC crawlers. Simply follow through the drop downs choosing the options you need.
Delrin (1/4") is the lightest and slides the best over rocks, logs, and other trail debris.
Brass (1/4") is the heavy weight, typically used as lower links for good vehicle balance. It typically slides better then aluminum.
Chubbies (5/16") is the big daddy for weight. It's made of brass rod and is very stout. This is great for that massive down low weight that crawlers often need to stay planted to the ground.
High Clearance Option:
The high clearance option gives you a bend on the rear lower links to help clear obstacles. You may find on certain vehicles this will leave your drive shaft more exposed to damage. Some folks will put spacers between the link and rod end on the upper link to achieve more "clock" in the driveshaft upwards out of the way. High clearance requires a full set of links because bent lowers will bind when used with straight uppers. All links need to be bent to work.
D-links uses the Traxxas revo rod ends with our product. They have proven to be reliable and long lasting. We do sell replacement rod ends in case you wear yours out.
Steering tie rod and drag links are available for an extra charge, but due to so many different options for knuckles and steering, you must include your desired link length, measured eye to eye or screw hole to screw hole. We can not be held responsible for incorrect fitment, but we will work with you to get the correct fitment should there be an issue.
Custom sizes available on request. Just measure center of eyelet to center of eyelet and enter in the box.
D-Links are made in the U.S.A. All D-Links are lifetime guaranteed. Send in the broken link and receive a brand new one. We can not guarantee the rod ends as they are a wear item and very between brands.
Q:Why don't we do aluminum?
A: Aluminum tends to grab at rocks and stick to them. It also bends fairly easily, for this reason we don't do aluminum links. If you are wanting light, Delrin will slide better and hold up better then aluminum and is super light.
Q: Why not stainless, doesn't it weigh the same as brass?
A: Stainless and brass are similar in weight, however we found that brass seems to slide better over obstacles.
