Default mrx4-r cut rear arms

Carlsen will be coming out with a set of cut upper and lower arms for the rear with the spacers for the mrx4-r available at brooklynhobbies. I don't trust myself enough to do my own cutting it myself so I'll be picking up a set. They also got the new ats tires/rims in which lowers lowers the weight 20-30 grams per set of 4. Also in is some pretty cool clutch tool sets which I'm looking in to right now.

How much for a set?

They're pretty cheap. I don't think I can mention the price here but here's the link:

I would cut it myself but knowing me, I'll screw it up. This is for people who don't want to hassle with it. Think of it this way, you'll still have the original set of arms as backup.

It appears they are charging $16 to dremel/mill 3mm off the arms.

The stock parts are only $19, but the Carlsen set is $35.

I'll keep my "dremel jobbed" arms. They fit perfect. Just use a set of verniers to measure the stock ones and a cutoff wheel on the dremel works great. Measure the arms till you've cut them 3mm less than the stock ones. I think the stock ones are 27.25mm without measuring one... so you'd cut them down to 24.25mm.

Seriously, I know I'll butcher the arms. I'm a lot better when parts and other things come pre-fitted. At least I know I can go back to the stock length if I don't like it.
