Yes, it work fine, the unique dissapoint is the litle paint is delete in a few races, you need to paint it.

So tonight I made it about 3 laps before the left rear fell off the car. I didn't think I hit anything very hard. It could have been from someone t-boning me on the straight after I spun out. Anyway, one of the screws holding the pivot block sheared off, and then it bent the hinge pin, and bent a camber link turnbuckle.

1) Are the titanium hinge pins stronger than the regular ones, or just lighter? They're only $13 as opposed to $9 for the regular, so if they're stronger, it's worth the money.

2) If I go from the CF arms to the med flex arms, will the car be more durable? I'm getting really frustrated breaking things all the time.

1) No, the Ti pins are not stronger, just lighter. If anything, they bend easier than the steel ones.
2) Med flex arms are a bit more durable, but they also change the handling of the car. No point in using the med ones, if the car doesn't handle well with them. In low-med grip conditions the car might be better with med arms, but on high grip carpet, CF is the way to go.

Avoid hitting the boards I hardly break anything but if I do I usually destroy the car....

they fit tightly. you can boil them to heat the plastic if you need extra assistance in getting the rings over the pulley flange. i rather this, than have them coming off in a run, and letting the belt fly off.

I'm going to have to say that in order to shear off a screw that tbone must have done some damage! I've bent plenty, but never broken one.. Any chance you have some axle threads sticking out past your wheel nuts? this can catch on the boards and make a big mess out of "light" taps.

Clip them how? I was thinking of just sanding them enough to fit snugly then just CA them on the pulleys...
