Default Compatible Turnbuckles for Madrat

Hi All,
I'm looking to swap all the turnbuckles on my mad rat for the type with a nut so i'm able to make setup changes without taking them off the ball joints.

Has any one else done this before and know which ones are compatible as straight swaps?

Yes, the team c cars are exact matches so if you look for a tc02c evo and it's spares you will get the turnbuckles you need. (The tc02 evo is the comp version of the team c Jekyll which is the same as the mad rat)
Modelsport in otley usually have all the spares, or inside line (on net)

No 4WD because nothing lives up to my original Optima. Until now maybe?...

Great thanks I'll get them ordered. On the subject of ball joints, do rubber o-rings make much difference on a buggy? I know they used to really remove play/ make a positive difference on the touring car.

I'll have to defer to others as I've not come across them being used, but that doesn't mean they aren't, though.
Sponge spacers are sometimes used to keep dirt out

turnbuckles turned up and fitted
Looking at the o-rings I was talking of, there is no play in the linkages (not like on my old schumacher touring car)
