A little information about the new arms, front and rear arms are different. Front has 2 shock mounting holes, and rear has 3. Rear arm also has 2 positions for rear hubs.

#79090 rear arm

They are supposed to be stronger. They did a lot more computer stress testing on them and stuff.

Any idea where we can see pictures and find more info? That's great news. I should get a prize for guessing they'd be different from front to back. :-D

A team guy just receives them today, the arms look very stiff and heavy duty. Sorry, don't know the release date. I hope very soon.

Congrats to Jeff Dayger (TQ) , TJ Bradley, Jeff Cuffs, Ron Atomic and Jarrod Langlois for all sticking it in the TC Stock A-main at the Birds with their Corally rides. Good luck to all of them on Sunday!

Everybody seems to be focused on a stronger A-arm. I also have had many broken arms.
But.... If our cars are put in a position to break an arm this means there is a strong force applied to some part of the car. Something has got to give. If they give us a stronger arm, then something else will break or bend.
I would be concerned about possibly replacing more expensive parts.
Any thoughts on this?

The arm is still going to be the weak point. The hinge pins are thicker than my ......... well, they're thick. Low roll blocks maybe? I've seen a couple of these break. The new arms should just avoid the breaking when you graze a wall at the wrong angle. No one is asking for titanium, just a little more insurance. The rear arms supposedly eliminate the need for the metal extension by molding the block into the arm. This should beef it up a little also. Good to see Corally listening once again. This company never fails to please.

Well I hope it keeps us from breaking the arms, because now when we buy a pack of arms for retail 30+ dollars we are only buying a set of rears or a set of fronts now that they have changed the rear design. I kinda liked the fact that I didnt have to worry about breaking a front left arm and all I have in my spares parts was a rear right. Now I do... . But if I don't break them often anymore then I guess its not that big a deal.

I agree. I like the idea of having 1 arm fits all. But I'll make room in my parts box for an extra set if it prevents me from breaking them as often.

Rear arms shouldn't get broken anywhere near as often as fronts, so you won't have to carry many spares for rears. And hopefully the arms will still be the same for left and right, so a spare front arm will work on either side. Unlike Losi, where left and right are different.
