    7033x or aluminum axle carriers??

    I'm currently using GH on my mini but I'd like to try the Traxxas 7033x
    7033x is $20
    Alum knuckles are $20/pr X 2 = $40

    I don't want to spen $3 on stock pivot ball caps again
    Have been trying to decide in one, but I'd like to try the 7033x
    Its going on another Mini

    What would you guys pick?
    Thanks

    I have the 7033x aluminum pivot ball caps and love them. Cured all of the slop and can take a good beating. Just make sure you use a drop of locktite before you install them into the plastic knuckles to keep them from backing out.

    +1 for that
    Thanks Maxximum
    I was leaning more for those since my daughter loves going up on curbs...
    With the tranny flip mod it's more capable of going up those cement speed bumps

    A good smack will still break a stock carrier though

    I'm yet to break a single stock carrier and my Merv cartwheels and flips like the U.S gymnastics team at the Olympics!

    I'd rather for my daughter to break the stock plastic ones instead of an aluminum one
    I don't think the aluminum would break with the speed I setted up
