They should be out in a month. We are still refining the mold of the arms to make them perfect. This will be a running change for arms with a different part number.

I guess this would mean they could but not deffinitely be out for LV? I already made the bars but would be nice to have the arms.

Has anybodys noticed that the arms on these cars seem to be real weak. They keep breaking in the same spot, I have broke 9 already. And I know quit hitting things. It seems if I even tap something they break. Same goes for the outdrives.

Well the only time I broke an arm it was a really ugly crash, so I sure wouldn't say they are weak.

Wow 9 arms! Thats crazy! Personaly have only broken a front arm, tapped the pipe enter the sweeper at the end of the strait; it was pretty much a given. Also have stripped out an inner pivot block. (Ran it with two shims and used the stock screws very little threads holding it in I had what was coming)

As far as out drives I have only broken one that was due to over tightening it due to lack of a spool.

Yeah 9 arms...WOW....get a P-dub/rubberneck/Parma bumper for your ride. The only things that I have broke so far have been ball cups and the drag link on the servo.

9 arms sounds like alot. I know I've beaten on some walls with this car, and last weekend was the first time I broke an arm, or anything for that matter. I think the car is very durable.

The BK brackets are not needed for carpet. Take for instance BEARS car(Ray's Red Car Acutally). The bumper he is referring to is a must have. They are great at protecting the front of the car.

The arms definetly are not weak I have hit some things pretty hard on the outdoor track.

Later,
