Default XXX-4 Machined Delrin Front Arms

Hello,

I've been working on these for some time. The "real" pics below are of the first prototype arms. The CAD pic is the final product and the first 50 pair are being produced as I type.

I am selling these direct and through ebay (user id: dmong2) only for the time being.

The price is $25 per pair plus $1.50 s/h (USPS First Class)

Right now, I am accepting pre-orders only. No money or commitent required until the parts are in stock which should be by the end of this week.

The arms are quite a bit stiffer than the stock units with almost zero lateral flex. They also feature additional lower shock mounting positions.

Please email me if you want to be on the pre-order list at [email protected].

I edited my first post to include the price.

I am trying to start a small rc company on a small budget. The cost for machined parts is much higher than molded, but the quality seems to be worth it.

I have been thinking about a XXX4 (the XX4 was one of my favorite cars to drive) and if I do decide to get one, I will definately pick up a pair of the arms, as I always would break my XX4 ones.

Do you have ones for the XX-4? My parents got me a used one for my birthday. The rear arms are Graphite, but the fronts are stock. I can't wait to get this buggy running! Might get the electronics tonight. I have one other question, not involving the arms. Would I have to break in a Trinity Speed Gems motor? Thanx.

Thanks for the ideas, but until I get the xxx4 arms off the ground and selling well, that may be all I can handle for a little while.

Oh yeah, break in any motor that has new brushes unless they arre already broken in by the manufacturer, like the Pro versions.
