|5260 Losi 8ight No-Pop Steering Ball|
and 8T "No-Pop" Steering balls
The Losi 8ight is a revolutionary 1/8th scale offroad vehicle with very few
weaknesses. After a more than a season racing the Losi 8ight, it became apparent
that occasionally, the steering tie rods "pop" off the ballstuds on a glancing
shot to the wheel. Every now and then, a Losi 8ight or 8T racer can catch a corner
pipe and pop the steering link causing the vehicle to loose steering. While this
race damage is not terminal, as the link can be quickly popped back on, a great
deal of time is lost in the race.
CRC's new "No-Pop" steering ball captures the link, keeping the tie rod
attached to the ball. It is practically impossible to cripple the car in an
accident as the flange on the ball keeps the ball link firmly attached to the
ball. The ball is made from 6061 aluminum and is hard polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE, that slippery stuff) coated for long wear
in the harsh offroad application. The kit comes complete with two "No-Pop" balls
and the necessary hardware (button head screws). Fits the Losi 8ight Buggy and
8T Truggy in all forms, RTR, RR and Comp kit.
