The new arms will solve your problem. Old arms 12 broken in 3 race weekends. New arms zero broken in 10 race weekends.

You want warranty replacements?

I think I'm entitled to them.

Son, we live in a world with injection molded plastics. And Losiís injection moulding has to be supported by manufacturing companies in Asia. Who's gonna do it? RPM? Integy? Losiís A-Arms have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for your R-Type and you curse Losi. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: That youíre a-Arms death, while tragic, probably saved your chassis. And Losiís warranty, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, is not going to provide you with replacement new arms.

(beat)

You don't want the truth. Because deep down, in places you don't talk about at parties, you want the new EA3 arms. YOU NEED THE NEW EA3 arms.
(boasting)

We use words like heat, pressure, vacuum forming...we use these words as the backbone to a life spent building performance plastics. You use 'em as a punchline.

(beat)

I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain Losi to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very technology I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide it. I'd prefer you just said thank you and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a wrench and fix it yourself! Either way, I don't give a damn what you think about our warranty!

Did you use substandard manufacturing processes?

I did the job Losi sent me to do.

Bad day at Snetterton. Wet practice, damp first round, dry second
round, then rain for third.
I also did two older type wishbones (front & rear) in finals.
The track is a car breaker if you get it wrong, car gets launched
off of kerbs.

Have two sets of new arms to put on now.

So, when's that front one-way coming out? The car pushes like a barge without it.

That's what I'd like to know. I asked a few days ago and got nothing. I have one coming in the mail to try this Sunday. Spools must not be as glamorous as one ways.

Unless you are on a track with huge sweeping turns a spool is just as good if not better than a one way
