Well, unless you're jousting with other cars, then anything that will partially shield expensive electronics from 2.5" tall wheels, flat-sided bodies and cars with bumpers is better than nothing at all.

It may not prevent EVERYTHING from hitting the GTB hanging off the edge, but I've seen plenty of goalies make stick saves with a 4" wide stick blade and keep the puck out of the 4' x 6' net.

It's called risk minimization, and I need all that I can get.

I hope this is true. Our indoor season is over. Hope these get out before fall.

We race on the rug all year around here, so updated arms will be welcome any time. :-) My good luck ran out tonight, I sheered off the right side of the car in a minor incident, obliterating both arms on that side.

Could they possible have changed the mold this quickly? Surely it would be a material update/change?

Not sure what they did, but I was told they are changed and should be as strong as the graphite ones we used previously.

What's the story on diff rebuilds for this car? There's no kit that I can find. Do you just replace the rings, balls and thrust as separate pieces?
