Default weak rear upper link

do you guys feel the rear upper links are a little too weak ? it bends very easy even a minor collision, it seems to me that maybe longer ball cups should be used ? but not quite sure which ones that will fit..any ways i can stiffen up the rear links without doing something major? thanks a bunch !

Because I, just like you and many others, like to spend money on rc stuff.

Yes! Use the longer ball cups then cut them little bit short.

Hey guys Im in the thinking process of getting the MTX-3. My cousin and I race electric almost every weekend and he just bought this car and tells me he loves it. I have never "RACED" nitro like I have been with electric competitavley but is this car a good race car? I have a nitro TC3 that Ive been using basiclly for strret bashing but want to race 10 scale onroad nitro now because of course I love to jump on the RC bandwaggon but want someone to give me a comparison on this car and the TC3 if you guys dont mind. That way I can decide to just keep what I have and dial it or just get a mugen.
