My son runs an Arrow AX8 chassis. We are new to the sport and I am looking to buy a few spare tie-rods for his kart. The current tie-rods are 10″ long. What I don’t know is the size of the eyelets. Would they be 8mm, 5/16th, 1/4th, 3/8th ? I didn’t know if there was a standard size it should be for this chassis. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
When you purchase the tie rod, ask the vendor for the appropriate left and right hand threaded ends. There is one of each per tie-rod. Probably 8mm. Don’t forget to get a couple of left hand thread jam nuts.
Bob – it might not be safe to “assume” they are OEM Arrow tie rods… I would check with an Arrow dealer for what the OEM tie rods are and see if they can confirm what you have to be OEM. Also, some chassis have offset tie rods, where the left and right sides are not the same length. I would check this as well.
