Broke another arm Monday, they're getting expensive ordering from NitroHouse every other couple weeks at almost $20.00 a pop with S&H.

I want to get the CF parts and lighter 3.2mm bump chassis and possibly go with a 3s combo to hopefully save on parts ? Just a lot of money to hopefully save some money in the long run ?? Sorta confused what to do.
If you're having that much issue then I suggest boiling your next set for about 10 mins. This will make a huge difference. Myself, and all the local guys haven't had an issue with arm breakage. If we break an arm we are usually glad that's all we broke Hahahaha

Oh I have one in my box of goodies as you know! I've had this particular setup since Nov and not had a single issue, yet.

The idea of you in a pole dancing outfit just made me puke in my mouth a little...

Mind you it's not a "huge issue", I've had the buggy for over a year but I've bought replacement arms at least 7,maybe 8 times now. Thats a lot of cheddar for replacement arms. I spoke about boiling in a previous post, guess I need to try it rather than talking about it.

First week I had my car broke 7 front right arms, due to me landing at an angle, now that I have the car down I have not broken an arm since(knock on wood) for about a month.

The only arm I broke the last time out was Theta's after landing the big tripple off to left and powding the wall at a 30 degree angle at 30+, She was sooooooo happy with me!

I'm sure lightning the over all weight will help this isse greatly. As I mentioned I would like to go with CF and the lightned chassis and a 3s combo. It would be really nice to shed 2+lbs from this format. I already have nearly a 1K invested already. Another several hundred is hard to justify for a club racing but I know it'll help. Just torn ?

You won't be happy with the result, I drove a buggy with all the Cf and ran 3s It was very nimble and fast but any little mistake or rut it was on its lid, 1/8 seem to run better with weight.

Why do you think Losi converted their 1/8 into a short course(pretty much) More stable with extra weight.

The lighter car was probably in need of a softer suspension setup! When people start comparing setups they never seem to mention running weight of their car.

No offense taken. I only referenced the Ve8 because of it being purpose built for electric just like the Hyper. I'm 39 and have been racing electric since 1992!

Hmmmmm, make sense.
My 9E is roughly 9lbs and my 10T is 6.9lbs (2650&3s)and it get's bounced around a lot more and it's nearly not as "forgiving" as the 9E. SO how do I help with breaking arms besides turn perfect overnight with my driving skills ??

Is it breaking due to larger jumps and you landing a bit off?

Nice way to say it, "landing a bit off"

As I said, I'm human. Yeah I land a bit off ocassionally and but never one any wheel landings or cartwheels etc. My buggy handles exceptionally well and I'm trilled with it but when I do F up, I pay the price with a day ending crash. It just gets tiresome.

EDIT; Have buddy with a Losi 8E, he bounces that buggy off everything and has some seriously ugly landings and NEVER breaks anything.
