i wish it was $9.90 for all 4 arms...or even 9.90 would be good

iirc AE used to charge 11.99 (thats over $20) for a pair of graphite arms, i think its about 10ish on tc4, and probably around 6 for 2 arms.

Thats because RC stuff is expensive over there in england

2 graphite arms over here are only $10 (I think, don't run the TC4)

in the last year I have bought one arm and two c-hubs due to breakage on my x-ray, when I ran the other car lets just say I had enough parts to build a second car just in case

Xray, withouth a doubt is one of the strongest top level cars out there,

in the full year that I had the FK04 I had to replace:

breakage:
1 shock body, plastic
1 rear shock tower (cracked but not broken)
1 drive shaft
1 upper bumper brace
1 lower bumper brace
1 set rear body mount

wear:
2 layshaft bearings
1 front belt

that is running at least once per week (some times twice) over 1 year. (mod, stock and 540) most of the time when I broke something I was running mod/19t at the time,

It wasn't Xray's fault either judging by your description of the accident from another thread...
