Lovely Links

RC Car Action - - PERFORMANCE TEST -

The BOM’S GA44 axles are sim­i­lar to the GOM’S, with their an­gled diff open­ings and at­trac­tive white-metal cov­ers that hide metal ring and pin­ion gears. Nicely turned alu­minum links lo­cate the axles, with a dou­ble­tri­an­gu­lated setup in the rear and a Pan­hard bar up front to ac­com­mo­date the servo-on-chas­sis steer­ing sys­tem. Gmade got the ge­om­e­try right, so there’s very lit­tle “axle walk” at full shock com­pres­sion.

Good-lookin’ parts here. The king­pins are an­gled to re­duce tire scrub.

8.9 in. (226mm) 9.4 in. (240mm)

The rear links are deeply tri­an­gu­lated to keep the axle in check.

12.3 in. (313mm) 20.3 in. (515mm)
