on my rubber tire car, i can't stop breaking graphite parts. I noticed that once i switched to aluminum steering knuckles i only break c-hubs.

The car is super weak, probably the most fragile i've ever owned, but once everything is upgraded to alloy its awsome. It just sucks that most of my parts have to come from Hong Kong.

When I tore apart my passenger side front suspension assy, I found the c-hub in peices and the CVD tore itself out of the axle.

Thank God these chinese hobby shops support the car 100%!

I wouldn't say the car is super weak. You must have very unfriendly track markings at your local, or you're hitting things very hard.

The graphite suspension parts are fine.

Anyone's aluminum parts will bend in a big enough hit - its just some bend easier than others...

I'll say it again - nothing's worse then trying to chase down a "tweak" in the car only to find out its your $30 C-Hubs that you bought 2 days ago...

No matter how much you crash/tap the board/whatever - 95% of the time its better to run the composite parts...Yeah, its frustrating when they break in a race, but its still a HELL of a lot cheaper to replace

ABout the only places I'd ever replace alumninum would be: wheels hexes, pulleys (center), suspension holders. That's it - everything else will be composite, and I don't drive like a pro

I 2nd that!!

I've torn off the rear suspenion of my FK05 due to a track that had VERY unfriendly track barriers...

THis track decided to use PVC (very nice, right?) - but they had all the connector on the OUTSIDE!!! so every 8' or so, there was a huge "arm grapper" just waiting for someone to brush the barrier...and the worse part, the track owners never saw anything wrong with what they had set-up...I know I stopped going there after replacing 3 Rear arms/CVDs/Diff Outdrive on my XRAY - and the XRAY ain't a weak car!!
