Exclamation Losi Strike Aluminum Parts

Hello everyone, I was just wondering if the aluminum parts for the Losi Strike are worth the price. I heard that these pieces cause other parts in the car to break. Any advice to this would be really appreciated.

I have a lot of time on my strike. I have all the aluminum on it and it has made the truck better for me. The front bulkhead is important. It takes flex out that tends to break front turnbuckles. I also run Lunsford tie rods with Team Losi 8ight captured ball ends for durability.

I'll snap a pic later...

So you have all the aluminum parts on your truck? And also, what motor and gears do you use for your truck, im trying to get the best setup for the truck, so i wont spend more money fixing it over and over again.

I'm running an Xcelorin sensored brushless setup with a 10.5 motor. I also run the Xcelorin 5000mah 40c battery.

is it a brushless motor? because i thought they used kv as a measurement, or did you convert it.
