    Why spend it? Just save up and get a big block motor! 75mph!!!! JK, I would go with rpm arms, you just can't break them!

    i'm glad i got my rpm a arms because i've hit some stuff on vacation that would have broke the stock arms fast and the rock my wife hit would have broken all 4 in the front instead it just ripped off the skid plate so good buy on my part. i have the black rpm to cover up the scraps.

    If you bash don't go with Integy shocks. They bend to easily :/ I had some but switched to big bores.
