I had a little time to work on my Gen8 AXE today and decided to add some more Treal brass upgrades. This time I went with the lower link mounts. Not only will this add a small amount of weight down low (improving stability), they'll also add strength to my truck and look great too.
Although I've never personally broken a lower link mount on my truck, I do sell them from time-to-time so I know other guys are breaking them. By swapping out my link mounts to these nice brass units, I've added strength to my own truck and will now have a second set of stock parts in my trail bag if my son ever breaks one of his on his V2.
Here's a quick look at these brass lower link mounts vs the stock mounts:
The stock plastic mounts and hardware weigh 14 grams.
The Treal brass link mounts and hardware weigh 45 grams - an increase of 31 grams over the stock plastic pieces. This isn't a massive increase in weight but, they'll also add strength and heck, they look cool too.
This is a super easy project but it will require a few tools. Here's what you'll need:
