    Either buy new ones or send the broken one back to rpm and they'll send ya a new one-they have a lifetime warranty on their stuff.

    Yup Just send it back to rpm... either you had a nasty hit which shouldn't happen often. Or you were the unlucky one that got a defective part.
    So I taped my hamster to the Pede..

    I did, I had 2 front A arms on my emaxx. Hit a curb at high speed, scracked 1 arm and snapped the other, I sent it to them. 2 weeks later a new front upper and lower LH & RH set came to me
    Wouldn't you like to know...

    Yes, a lot of us have. They are generally very good about it. If you have a part that has shattered, there's only one way that happens, which is running in very low temperatures. They may or may not elect to replace such a part - once. The warranty is not unlimited, but it is more than most of us "deserve."

    Again, like KSB said, the RPM warranty is NOT unlimited. Read their warranty page. Its actually a fairly normal warranty. It just lasts the lifetime of the part. If they feel it has broken due to a MFG defect they will replace it. Otherwise they wont.
