Default HPI SPRINT 2 help

Hi guys. I am having a problem with my flux. Its like anytime I bump a curb with medium to light force the camber arm pops off. That wouldn't be so bad if the dogbones didn't pop out also. Now you have to go on a manhunt just to find those little suckers. Pain in the a$$. Does anyone else have this problem? Did anyone find or know a solution? thank you.

replace the stock ball cups with RPM ball cups. The RPM's are a tight fit so you will have to free them up by installing them and squeezing them with some needle nose pliers.

I have learned the hard way also with this car. After replacing the above said parts painting the dog bone bright red has saved me some time looking like a tard while looking along curbs ware I thought the impact happened. I find that any parts prone to be ejected in a hard hit save yourself a little time and a stiff neck and get some red spray paint
