R.B.S.L. V2's are here!!!!

New V2 Designed Offset rod ends(7075 Aluminum)and V2 Pivot Balls(Stainless Steel) give added strength, clearance and style to the R.B.S.L. !!! Now with their own pivot balls! There are 3 sizes that will all fit the same rod end. M2.5, M2, M1.4. These are small on one side and bigger on the other, when installed correctly, these rod ends will never come off! This R.B.S.L. for the Redcat Ascent 18 axles, comes with M2 pivot balls and one extra M1.4 pivot ball for your servo horn if it requires m1.4 hardware. The M1.4 Pivot ball has the added bonus of being inset so the the screw head is flush with the pivot ball lip. Keeps the screws short and gives clearance away from the diff cover. 

Step away from the square edge steering links and step towards the R.B.S.L. for your Redcat Ascent 18 Axles! This steering link has 14 5mm sealed or 12 6mm sealed bearings! This dramatically reduces the risk of hang-up from a square edged steering links. Now the R.B.S.L allows you to slide over the hang ups giving you that flow in your ride. Hardware is included.  

For the Ultimate Flow, pair the R.B.S.L with Punishment RC's Front bumper/set. Designed with the R.B.S.L setup in mind, say goodbye to Front end hangups on the the Redcat Ascent 18 body. Find them here

 Added benefits 

Zero drag steering link- No edges to get caught on here. 12 sealed and oiled bearings on the 5mm and 10 sealed and oiled bearings on the 6mm give no resistance to glancing edges

Adjustable drag link - no more offsetting of your steering rate from off center servos

 Adjustable Toe-In / Toe -Out - most aftermarket parts aren't too off but some are. Now you can adjust Toe angle if needed. They are 4 full turns in either directions on the tie rod ends for a few degrees of adjustment. 

 For rock crawling Toe-out gives you a better initial turn in on corner entry but will make the truck unstable under acceleration(faster trucks) on the straights and on bumpy tracks

 Toe-in will reduce steering when entering a corner but improves steering response on corner exit under acceleration(faster trucks)

A slight 1° toe out would be good for our slow crawlers.

 But have fun trying the different setups. Every truck setup is different so one might work better for your terrain or setup.
