Default A Arm issues

Well, I just started back about 6 months ago racing after a five year layoff. I drove losi, sh, hotbodies before I settled on the Mugen. I have a buggy and a truggy. Even with my rustiness I haven't broke the first thing on either vehicle. I have seen them break on other Mugens but the way they were driven had alot to do with that. I was told that on the truggies if you don't balance the tires it causes alot of wear and tear on your a arms and causes them to get sloppy and break. I also know that mugen has fixed the issue with different composite material.

With you saying different composite material, how long ago was this done?

Is the new Composite material on the kits that are out at the moment?

Cheers .

All truggys/buggys break parts, and every truggy/buggy can be fast if it has the right setup with the right tires on the right track with a good, patient driver.

I started with a D8, then went to Mugen because I felt like the plastic components on the D8 were a lesser quality than the Mugen's. Also, I'm a big fan of the Mugen's front pillow ball design on the hubs, every other design out there I've seen is a c-block on a hub which I believe to be less durable and not as smooth in the long run.
