Im breaking arms pretty easy too.............. I went back to my
Evo III because its built like a rock. It makes me mad that the parts are breaking so easily.

I have broken 1 caster block so far and it was from me smashing the wall after jumping a dot... I dont think they break easilly, just when something gets hit.

I've seen that in the past, and had it happen in the past, I believe that there may already be a fracture in the piece at that point though. If you do see a fracture in a graphite piece, the good news is CA will bond very strong if you cant get a replacement right on there. I cracked a chassis right by the motor, used CA to seam it back and there is no way to tell it was ever cracked.

I see you guys are talking about hte ROAR Nats...We are flying out for them and was getting a little concerned with the pre-entry totals. What is the vibe on the Nats from what you guys are hearing?

Thanks

Jeff

I was talking to XXX-S Bill about the nationals this weekend and he brought up a great point.

Nationals are outside in Portland. That equals a high chance of rain. I would be sooooo pissed to spend the cash to go up there and it rains.
