Waste of money if I would have to replace the arms after every 10 runs or less.
you don't "have " to replace them until they break. plastic arms with metal hinge pins in 1/8th scale off-road racing will produce slop 100% of the time, in any car.

Hey I was at a race this weekend and after a few laps I noticed my engine would die out when I would refuel the truck ? Is it the gas tank lid or ? I checked the fuel lines and no holes or cuts ? Help

Your bottom is probably to rich. If your tune seems good then you might want to richen up the top and lean the bottom.

If the tune is good then all that's left is the tank and fuel line. I would start by replacing the fuel line it's cheap and then if it still does it change the tank. I have had new tanks have problems from the start. There's nothing else that can cause flame out issues.

+ 1 I agree with that ( assuming you have no air leaks or clutch issues )

are you running your tank almost dry when you pit? and how full do you fill it? i have had this issue befor cuz i was running it almost dry and my pitguy would over flow the tank when fueling so when the lid slapped down it would push exrta fuel threw it causing it to stall.
