I use this one. Bought 2 of them 2 yrs ago. One for my steering on my 6t and the other for backup. It is pretty strong as I am still using my first one and the backup is still in its package.

Am I the only one breaking an abnormal amount of A-arms? Front and rear, none seem to last. Getting to the point of changing brands because of it. I have tried boiling with no success. I really like my car, but might change out of frustration.
Is it just me?

Maybe it's me, but I'm not a total newb. The first gen arms lasted me forever. These 2nd gen arms are more fragile(for me).

So no one really has any idea what parts Chad uses for this mod?

What are doing to your buggy to break so many arms? is it crashes into something or somepart of the track at speed, bad landing or big ass jumps?...6T truggys I see quite regulary break them but not mbx6 buggys.

A couple of breaks we're well deserved. The last race I qualified 10th in the Pro amain. I drove extremely conservative and smooth. Only a couple of time being marshaled after light crashes. Finished in 10th with a broken rear arm. I always check over my cars really well before every race. With my previouse cars (D8) I never had an issue.
Just kinda bummed and whining I know, but I really like my Moooogen!
I race in the northwest, so temperature could be a partial factor.

What worked for me was to only snug the shock screw to the arm. Don't over tighten the screws.

You saying that reminded me that my pit guy tightened the screw on the shock mid-race. That was the rear that broke. I just checked and yes it was over tightened. No blame though, he saved my race. I fell a little better, but still have broken to many.

Thanks for the reply.

I just happened to try an AE spacer for the RC10B4 and it fit perfect. Not sure how I manged that, but I'm not complaining.
