I think I've solved the broke arm issue... Two full days of racing which included some hard hits and no sign of breaking.... just followed what someone else here posted a while back... piano wire shoe gooed to reinforce the arms... did it to the upper and lower arms... this also added weight up front which helps...

Also polished the king pins and the aluminum pivot balls the pins go through... they seem to want to grab a little, thought that might have caused some front end bounce...

went to a Tamiya F201 very stiff spring for the back and 65 weight oil.... had to shorten the black shock shaft cover tube to compensate for the longer spring....

running a 21.5 motor, 35 spur with a 32 pinion for carpet and a 36 pinion for asphalt...

Shimizu threaded F10 tires... soft front and rear.... car is very competitive with the 104's...
