The medium flex arms are the way to go front and rear. I've prefered them on every track I've been since the med arms came out. durability from breakage is better but keep an eye on twist in the arm as they are more flexible -duh- and do tend to retain some of that twist. not bad like pos bad, but you will need to replace them every now and then to keep your car sharp

i ran them last weekend during a indoor carpet race. the track pipes had no give and were held in place with bricks very large heavy bricks, after two front arms and one rear arm in practice i decide to go with the med flex all around, it made the car "different". i only ran these during the qualifiers, during the mains i ran the std CF arms. as stated before, very good durablity.

I would have to agree. It came down to 12.3 in the main in Jacos. I was happy with it. Now if the driver could only drive as half as good as the car was in the main.

Do you run for extended periods of time where the Core might go too low? If not just take off the cutoff stuff and the LED wiring :P
