Re: Beefing up the rear radius rods?
Yes. I fabricate a set which I, damon, and Aaron run on our race rigs. Not a single issue since putting them in. They are REALLY beefy and stronger than the heims which hold them in place. So the weak link is no longer the link!!!
What do you want to know? Do you have access to a machine shop and could make your own? If not, I could fab a set and mail them out to you for about $100 + shipping.
Let me know.
I will try to post up a picture of them tomorrow.
Edit: I just read the replies of putting poly pipe around the links. Without sounding like a shit, that is a SERIOUS bandaid and doesn't solve the real issue. The issue is that the links in these are NOT designed for anything but sand. If you hit a reasonable sized rock (size of your hand) at 60mph, those things break like tooth picks and take out everything else on that side. Just ask Aaron. His snapped during a race and took out his main trailing link and a half shaft. You REALLY should consider making or purchasing stronger ones and never worry about it again. Seriously! I will post pics tomorrow.
