I remember this years ago on off-road vehicles, but they had pretty much plain plastic arms. TC'c have all kinds of materials in thier arms like graphite and what not. I'd try it you never know the worst thing that can happen is you ruin a set of arms that's just a cuple of bucks.

Try boiling your speedo, I hear it lowers the internal resistance.

my dad used to do it back in the day but he boiled plastic arms not graphite it only makes them more flexible... if you boil graphite it will become fragile like glass.... hope that helps.

you can boil your graphite parts as far as I know BUT ONLY during full moon and it must be holloween.
