Trust me a bent hinge pin can cause mayhem to a car and can be impossible to see without tearing the car down.
I understand that concept that I can destroy different stuff with aluminum. But it's a risk I'm willing to take till I get the setup down.

Are you breaking graphite c-hubs or just stock plastic ones?

Like 40 packs through my car, not a single broken part and I have hit some stuff pretty bad even. Lost one DJC pin though as I forgot to rebuild them before installing. So don't forget to use black grase and red thread lock on the set screws.

That's not helpful at all. If we are talking about racing here, we are talking about pushing the limits. We risk going into corners at the highest speed possible every single time. And accidents do happen sometimes. Usually small ones that only add scratches to the bodies. But every once in awhile, even the most experienced guys on our track would break a lower arm or two. So for him to ask which parts break easier is completely understandable.

I am sure for those who just bought this car are still testing around with different settings at the moment. And it is during the set up stage where breakage happens the most in my opinion.

yes you are right..I have many friends drive BD5 and I'm sure the parts are the same the use on BD7 for option ..There are one racer I know he break a lot every time he hit or tap the pipes..I use to drive yokomo for along time until yokomo usa stop selling ... if any car isn't set up to go fast and stable..you will break no matter what..
Not trying to put anybody or yokomo BD7 down..just me .02 cent

Does anyone know of any other ball cups that will work on the bd7 besides the stock ones? Hoping for something I can get quickly to put on my titanium turn buckles.
