I didn't run truggy nearly as much as I did Buggy over the summer, but arm wear was normal IMO, and not exessive at all.. When I sold it 3 of the 4 arms were original, and were jsut needing replacement. The chassis had about 5-6 gallons on it..

I used to run hot bodies and the car is really good but the drive lines and the cvds are not good at all. you have to work on them like every other week if not every week and it got to the point where I was breaking cvds all the time I sold mine when I broke 4 in one night I did not finish a qual or the main

people who dont build them right have problems.. cvd boots full of grease with heat shrink keep my pins in, and the axle nice and smooth with no breakage.
