Just asking a question.

drew i dont think it should be a problem the new arms are plastic so they would snap before u get anywere close to ripping apart the tray, i have never seen a radio tray rip apart and i dont think too many people have hit as hard as i have lol

hmmm

I used all stock front end parts.

I came together with a car at the winter nats, car was upside down in the infield.

When i hit that car it did no damage to my arms.

It did however, nock the right front hub off the lower ball

and it did rip the upper arm and hing point out of the radio tray

In turn that also bent the right front bulk head a little bit.

This was on the infield it didnt look like that hard of a hit but ti did damage the radio tray

LOL @ crash testing.

You want to do some crash testing to to FT Myers

I saw a 1/8th onroad car at least 12+ft in the air.

It was so high I thought he was going for the house jump record.

I did that at the GLC once. Easily cleared the fence at the end of the straight.
