They snap on, by boiling you soften them, then you can just snap them on.

put the bottom on, while pressing, slide your finger up both sides of the ring, and when you get to the top press really really hard, it snap in, if not, get your girlfriend to do it. thats what i did

I was stopped toward the end of the straight. Thinking about it, it may not have been a t-bone. It may have been a rear-ending. That would explain a bending force against the hinge pin in combination with a shearing force to the forward block-to-bulkhead screw. If that's what broke it, I suppose medium flex arms probably wouldn't have helped. Now, I wonder if more or less stuff would have broken if I had the screws in the ends of the hinge pin. I took those out in hopes of breaking fewer pivot blocks. The pivot block actually didn't break in this incident. It was slightly damaged, but didn't break.

I'm really not concerned about handling impact of medium arms. The car doesn't handle properly (meaning in a manner that I'm capable of driving without breaking the car) right now, and I can't get it dialed in when I break it every 10 laps.

I also thought I broke my front spool when I was getting ready to go out for practice. Turns out one of the screws just backed out. All this on top of forgetting to bring my bodies with me, so I had to beg for someone's cast-off stock touring body. Good thing the people I race with are SO nice and generous.

Anyone got some NIP short medium flex arms they'd like to trade for NIP CF ones?

I'll look when I get home Mike. But, I think I sold all Mi3 parts with the car.
See you soon at Jackson.

No there are no such things available for the Mi4LP BUT you can fit the XRAY ones in, You will need to dremel out the Chub to allow for the Bulkier assembly but they do fit and i am seen them run well int he car

Cheers
