Default Will you buy RPM arms for MBX6-T?

HI;
Many of the Mugen MBX6-T users suffer from front lower arm breakages and I want to contact with RPM and want from them to build a-arms for Mbx6-t . As you know personel demands are not very influential so I decided to open this thread to show RPM the demand on this issue. Please don't hesitate to write 1-2 words and do something for make your allready great trugyy bulletproof.
Will you buy RPM arms for MBX6-T?

I have the buggy and never broke an arm, but I do know truggy racers who break them.....I've heard boiling them helps, but not much feedback on that...

that's a really good idea buddy....RPM....why not....

RPM makes parts that are great for bashing, but the plastic is too "spongy" for racing. There aren't many RPM parts on most race vehicles.

They make arms for basher vehicles because that what bashers do, break shit. If your breaking arms on a 1:8 buggy or truggy idc the make n model, u need to slow down. It's not a closed wheel truck like a slash or t Maxx. U hit something with your wheel at 20+ mph expect to break.
