Default Losi turnbuckles convert

I got a Losi 8ight-E and it came with no turnbuckles. Does someone know what part number or dimensions I need to convert it to turnbuckles? I bought some "Losi" turnbuckles and the ends are way too large for the balls. I may only need ends, how are they named out?

I am pretty sure the front and rear both use 60mm turnbuckles. They should use rod ends that fit on 6.8mm balls.

Thanks Rusty, almost the same size I got at 5x60mm with too large ball ends.

Would you know the size of ball pliers I need for this? Seems size if not called out on these either.

Do you have a Losi? What other brands are the same quality as Losi? I'm impressed with Losi's tight wheel mechanics and handling. Great for high speeds.
