Mite take me a while but i like free stickers. lol

Ok heres the materials. I'll get the details posted when i find the site.

-RC car wheel bearings(i'll find the site and post it, they're 10 bucks)
-8 washers (i'll find the exact size for you guys)
-4 e-clips
(i'll also find the exact size on these as well, just so no-one has to go waste their time)

Is this similar to the Kyle links?

I'm pretty sure the free stickers were just an intro thing.
Please PM or email me if you see any issues with the site.

Be patient, u've gone this long with booger or prothane, i think u'll be ok. :wink:

I use a stack of washers and an E clip on the trans. Before that I was running a nut in there. Didn't have hardly any slop. Haven't messed with the ones at the shifter itself.
I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night, I HAVE to be right.

Old post I know
Just thought I would bring up the fact Kyles rod ends were intended to repair or prevent broken cables
If it was just about being stiff booger bushings or a ghetto filled bushing would be fine

A stack of washers or RC wheel bearings will make the action smooth but on the other side will cause the cable to bind even more and likely cause premature failure

and no one wants premature Fail

Theres no binding at all, i mean im sure u could be onto somethin and u just didnt explain it enough, but I see no reason that it'd bind. Im not an expert on it, I just do what I do. lol

thats what he is talking about. placing it in the hole that the bushing goes in and then a washer on each side. Put it on and place a c-clip on the end to hold it all on

The only problem i see is sis to side motion. since its not a spherical bearing it does not rotate on 3 axis

this would be more appropriate

spherical bearing
