Default Racing Beat endlinks.

Can they be adjusted when on the car (turnbuckle style)?

Yes, I think. Now that you mentioned it let me check.

PM fidgitk, he put them on while I was messing with the tierods.

Looks like it, but definitely not as easy as the 949 end links.

Ya, they don't look as easy as the 949's but I like that they're poly and cheaper .

For some reason I read somewhere that you had to remove them to adjust the turn buckles... but as long as the they can be adjusted on the car I'm happy.

Thanks..

I guess it would depend on if one end has reverse threads or not. If so, spinning the turnbuckle would make the assembly longer or shorter, if not, spinning the turnbuckle would just move the turnbuckle up and down, but keep the same amount of threads.

Pretty much the whole point of turnbuckles is being able to adjust them, so it would be pretty stupid for them not to have one left handed side.

Ya, that's what I'm trying to find out here. If anyone has them, can you please check? I'm sure there are others who would also appreciate the information!

Aren't the RB links just threaded rods? I don't see how you would adjust them if so. I just placed my order for some 949's. I wouldn't own the RB ones since they would be putting the same issue right back on my car, which is not having the ability to pivot (no rose joint like the 949 has), which puts my sway in a bind, and broke the stock link.

I suppose vice grips on the shaft would work if it's not too bound.

Yup. And you can indeed adjust them on the car, but you have to disconnect one end. doh.

But they're cheap and the don't rattle a ton like all the bearing-based endlinks I've had, so I like them.
