This product was added to our catalog on November 9, 2011.This is an optional ST Racing Concepts CNC Machined Aluminum HD Steering Link Set, and is intended for use with the Axial Wraith. The stock plastic steering linkage on the Axial Wraith is a common weak point on the truck, as the stock pieces tend to be sloppy and weak in transferring the torque and power coming from the steering servo. These CNC Machined Aluminum Steering links feature 7mm thick aluminum tubes for lower and upper steering links. The upper link features a slight bend that allows for all the power and torque from the servo to be transferred in a perpendicular angle to the arm of the knuckle to ensure no power is loss in the transfer.
NOTE: Both the suspension link and steering link requires Axial turnbuckle ends (AXI80057) and the stock ball links from the vehicle.

ST Racing Concepts Aluminum HD Steering Link Set (Silver)
This kit works but as with many of STRC's products, it is a real pain to install. You need to order a separate set of rod ends from axial to make this work. Even with the correct rod ends (as specified by STRC) you still end up with a lot of toe in. I had to fabricate my own shims to correct the toe. Despite all this, once you get the kit installed it works very well. This is a huge improvement over the stock plastic links. Upgrading to steel steering links is a must do for any Wraith or Ridgecrest owner. That said, there are other better, one piece link, options out there. Search around before you settle on STRC.)
