If you are breaking plastic arms at that rate you will just bend aluminum. What are you hitting to break them? Sounds like you should just slow down a bit.

if your breaking you losi arms you will surely bend aluminum ones. then you suspension will bind and it will drive like crap.

I have had my xxx-t for years and it still has the original arms on it. Whatever your doing its not the trucks fault. Stop hitting this and jumping at 100 mph and you see your parts last much longer.

If you really want to bash.

Break out the traxx-ass

here is what happens when you add aluminum to your truck. You make on part stronger it will displace the stress else were.

Meaning instead of breaking an a arm, you'll bend a hing/king pin and a front bulkhead. Or you'll break a carrier assembly. If its a bad enough hit sonething will break. I would recommend tring some of the ec3 arms, they have more flex in them

There are only a few things that are good to have as aluminum. Just look at a factory team T4. They only use it in certain places. I am not bashing using alum, but it has its places. And a arms is not one of them.

But please feel free to try it out.

aluminum brace in front of the front bulkhead helps if you are breaking that. Does rpm make front arms for it?

I don't know. I've had my speed-t setup to run offroad since Late December and I really haven't had many problems with it. Only time I broke an Arm was when I smashed the front A-Arm into a tree.
