With the Alu spool yeah i even drive 2*5min runs because of the mod classe Brushless or 7T motors!
But i drive with the Delrin spool and i drive about 10 or 15 times 5+min and the blades are still good but not optimal!

Well, in the US the plastic blades last one run in modified. Not so bad in 19T and stock. You can check out SRC Steel Blades and CVD Bones as well for the ultimate setup.

losi springs fit..

good: car is awesome.

bad: fragile, but get the specialized ultimate bumper set.

the ugly is other people struggling to keep up. haha

Do the new arms not help with the car not breaking? i borrowed a RDX at the last race in the WCICS series here in western canada. the car is awsome to drive i put in in the A for both stock and 19Turn .
I broke arms on the car but they were the old arms , do the new arms not stop this or are you still talking about the old arms?
Just looking for a little more info as i am in the process of switching but not sure if i will just wait for the new car to come out or not.

As Jeff says above, get the Specialized bumper setup.

The new arms DO help; but, they are not indestructible.

Even the Alloy arms are a bit piss weak. This was from a soft hit in a Stock Race.

The new arms are supposed to be stronger, and they do have the new mounting positions for the sway bars and shocks. I can't say I've noticed a significant difference in durability, they break about as often as the old ones did, except now they break around the inner pins instead of breaking in half. The SRC bumper seems to be the key to keeping the arms intact, regardless of new or old. That's just my humble opinion, though. I'm sure 10 guys will jump in here and tell you something different. I do prefer the new arms, though, especially in the rear since I can run the shocks all the way out without needing the x-long extensions.

That's exactly where the new arms break. I guess something has to give. I'm surprised it wasn't the hinge pin rather than the arm, though. By the looks of that break, it almost seems like the arm was pulled off. Did your wheel nut catch on a board, perhaps? That seems to be the biggest arm killer of all.

As syn says, the new shock mounting points are a welcome feature of the new front and rear specific arms.

I am currently running the #35 arms on both my indoor and outdoor cars.

Jeff, I think my car is quite good with them. I would say for the mod I made, the lap times are the same as the standard steering, but a different feel. I'm still trying to come up with an explanation of the feeling, but it's different.

i have noticed with mine that the steering response is quickend through chicanes. but it definatly has a different feel when driving compared to stock. but also your extensions put the link in a different position than mine do. to be honest with you i just took some team tamale shock tower braces and mounted them to te knuckle.. haha

i was just wondering what setup you are running brian. but its kind of hard to compare your setup to mine since i am running a completely different top deck than you which has different flex characteristics than what you are running.
