But leave alone if your track hasnt got good traction !!!
The stiffer setup would suit treated high bite tracks.

This is the same problem everyone using the flying wing arms has in a big crash, mainly the rears - in the latest kits TM now use a longer ball stud.

Up until now, I was using super gluing the balls in place ( helps a lot)

when i ran the car, i used to use the G4S front arms, they are much stronger. but was still left wondering after a minor incidcent,wether the rear arms were ok. by using the G4S arms, the castor remains the same, but you wont be able to use the shorter front wheelbase unless you shorten the length down 2mm . i used the Mugen shock ends also, but this still didnt fix the cracking issue.

hey Alex how are they cracking are you hiting something hard ??I have never had an issue with my front arms i am not sure if i use the longer thread studs but I have smashed and flipped my car in a race every now and then but i have only cracked a front hub, could there be an issue with your down travel screw setting??there must be something thats creating pressure and makes the bottom of the shock pull out the ball stud like that??cause the amount of times you have had it happen dosent seem right?
cheers

Longer ball studs will solve the hassle even on the G4S but more so on teh flying wing arms as there is less material around the mounting hole.
This is rather a common problem.
I had the std ones pull out on teh G4S often.
