    Rpm all the way They have some "give" to them. Aluminum when it bends its all done and normaly will rip something else off with it. Black or blue is personal preferance

    RPM All the way. If one of those A arm pins get broken in your aluminum bulk head, game over! They look really good but RPM hands down. Plus you can choose from blue, black and white!

    I have not dyed any rpm parts but I have dyed Traxxas wheels, the e-revo chassis and other parts with great results. It is real easy to do. If you do a search on the forum you will find some good how-to's.

    SOME stuff is ok with aluminum. Like shock caps, nuts etc. But for the most part. RPM just rocks. Tough stuff!
