sorry guys but this video isn't a great tutorial, however, it's basic and to the point.
Hardware parts found at Home Depot. Traxxas 1651 on ebay and skateboard bearings ( 8x22x7 mm) ebay. You can substitute the pvc handle and just buy a jump rope because the handles already have the bearing inside and it comes with the soft foam grip.

Hope the video helps you guys.

Traxxas 1651 traxxas.com/support/How-install-u-joints
2 3/4" x 90 Electric Metal Tubes (L-shaped)
5 3/4" Set Screw Couplers
1 Skateboard Bearing
1 Female PVC adapter
1 PVC Pipe
OR Skipping Rope handle with bearing
5/16 and 1/4 drill bits
1 x 5/16" Hex Bolt
2 x 14" and nuts
Plenty of washers... big ones. Optional: Quick release plate - Manfrotto 577 or 2 way Fotomate macro cross slider under $15 dollars. If you are using a 5d or 7d, I HIGHLY suggest you get the macro cross slider too!
When drilling, one set of holes will be 1/4, while the second set for the handle is going to be a bit different.
The top is 5/16, but the bottom is going to have be bigger than the 5/16 to fit the Traxxas. I used the next step up drill bit and still had to bore the hole with another bit to get it wide enough.
Loading more stuff…
Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
