Even though the SCX10 TR’s plastic suspension and steering links are very durable, we have had a handful of requests sent to us wondering what it takes to swap out the plastic links on a TR to aluminum for even more strength. I’ve also been seeing a few questions posted by people wondering if the 4 link truss will work on the front axle of the SCX10 with the steering servo in the stock location. The answer is “yes” it will fit. The conversion is fairly straight forward with the right parts. So, I converted my TR over to all aluminum using Axial’s scale 4 link truss front and rear to see exactly what existing Axial parts were needed to get the job done. Here is a quick breakdown of the parts I used for this conversion.
