I just changed out my steering pushrod. I had made one out of a carbon arrow shaft with 4-40 ends and recently noticed the ends were giving and coming back bent. I bought some 1/8 stainless rod and cut it the same length. I used a die and threaded both ends for 6-32 and then I ran a 6-32 tap into monster 4-40 ball links and then threaded them onto the shaft. It definitely solved the issue. Good to hear you’re making progress with the boat! Keep us updated!Quick update....boat is getting faster....tried 6719/3 554 and a 7217/2 450 last Sunday and changed out the rudder and I definitely saw a difference. The 3 blade settled the boat more than the 2 blade, but the 2 seemed faster....GPS will have to tell the difference. Last thing I think I need to do is get the steering rod captured.
