Default boiling rpm parts

I got a new chassis and I will be boiling the chassis and dying it. Would it benefit me to boil the rpm parts too? or would it just be the same? Wanted to know as I'm starting to boiling tonight.

Only if you want to change the color. I don't see any benefit to boiling parts for durability with todays plastics. Back in the day, yes but not anymore.

Haven't had to do that in a long, long time.....don't think RPM ever needed boiling anyway, their recipe includes nylon which is what makes them tough and slightly flexible.

Okay, no boiling then. Thanks for the help guys. I know of a racer in the UK who still boils all his parts.
