    Alum A-Arms

    Reading through a few threads I'm still not clear, hoping someone might know this.
    Will the Alum Rear A=Arms purchased for a Rusty fit on the rear of the 4x4 Slash?
    Appreciate the feedback.

    I haven't tried yet, but I hear the stock arms fit. So I would assume they'd work, might require a little modification?
    Break it, so you can upgrade it!

    i dont think they wouldd.
    the stock ones will, but they wont.
    the alumiinum ones were CUSTOM FITTED for the rusty, it is not part 3655.
    i tried rpm, and they didnt work

    just go with stock

    its not that they bend, its that they DONT and soemthing else breaks instead (bulkheads, diff cases, chassis' etc.) If you are worried about your stockers breaking, boil them! It will add some flex back into them!

    Unless they are 7071-T-6 or T7 aluminum i wouldn't bother, because when thnat big crash comes, the cheaper ones will bend, not to mention the extra weight, I know it's only ounces but after a while it adds up. RPM's are coming in March, I'll wait.

    I'd say that any arms from the rustlar would need alot of mod, and no sway bar holes.
