Exactly! I do find this thread informative though.Oddly enough I've never broken an arm on my XXX4G+.I guess thats because I use stock pivots.I cant find a full set of Aluminum ones.I break front spindles & carriers,front pivots, front shock towers and front diff. outdrives.I have never counted hitting something,I know parts will break when you hit things.I break stuff off jumps and before anyone says it ,even well landed jumps.Just for the record I have at least 10 other (older 4WD) buggys including a XX4 so I'm not a stranger to 4WD buggys or a Losi hater.
The JConcepts aluminum caster blocks look like they will work on the XXX4 anyone know if thats the case.If any of you XXX4 owners know where I can get the aluminum pivots a link would be great.
