The thing is that if you drive in really cold conditions the arms can actually become more brittle than they were before boiling. I've heard the 5t is pretty durable and i've only heard of the arm breaking issue on the 6t.
Yes I boiled the arms and still managed to break 3 front lower and 1 rear. The truck handles great but Mugen just won't fix that issue.
