How come 1/5 scale cars don't use cables for the throttle and rear brakes? seems like it would be a snap to adjust. Maybe they didn't want to use return springs?

Rods are simpler to adjust and not likely to break.Cables are used at suspension and areas
needing flex.rc

the only thing i dont like is the cable end doesnt have threads from the store . but i have since made new ones at work using 10/32 thread to go into the mating end " cant remeber proper term"
and also the total cost was around 10 bucks .. if your unsure take your machine into the bike shop and then they'll hook you up for sure ... thats what i did and was good confo piece as well :)
