    Best A-arms for the Pro

    Is there any better A-arms for the Slayer Pro than the stock ones? I don't want to convert to Revo arms or anything. Just broke my first arm was seeing if there was anything better out there. Haven't had much luck so far.

    Stock. RPM does not make them and you'll want to stay away from Integy.

    Well stay stock ... you are better having a breaking point on a cheap part then having one on a high price one ! ... but i dont know what you do but Stock aarms can hold alot of hit ! xD P.S dont jump from the roof of your house ! xD

    Thanks for the info. I have heard bad things about Integy. I have some fab history from building hot rods and have been kicking arount the idea of trying to make my own from small aluminum tubing and tig welding them but they would probably to heavy and expensive to be worth it. I do have a cousin that is a CNC machinist, I may talk to him and see if he can CAD/CAM program something up.

    I would say upgrade them, but there is nothing to upgrade to! LOL. Nothing wrong with the stock arms, they are HARD to break!

    The problem with that is every arm is different so you would need to make program for all 8 arm. One of the biggest reason RPM doesn't make arms for the slayer.
    I wanted to put a really cool signature but I ran

    I'm looking in the same direction as you doc so far the price of the build isn't worth it. Unless you got a buddy at the mill.
