LOL. I'm lazy and just ordered the right length from Aircraft Spruce....Me I would be asking why the extra length on the bolts was not cut back to within 2 or 3 threads.
That’s appropriate. We typically trash bars with aluminum rod ends 1-3 times a season. If there is any sign of damage the rod ends get replaced. Those that make it through that typically get a bit loose after about 20 race nights. That’s probably about 10 hours at speed.FRank, aluminum spherical rod end bearings are specifically forbidden in some sanctioning bodies because of potential fatigue failures.
