    Angry Well this sucks.

    Second ever run with the Rusty and caster block snapped, and the king pin broke. I know this happens all the time but will the Traxxas aluminum ones make this not happen anymore?

    Traxxas or STRC caster blocks are a great upgrade.

    You'll want to get part# TRX3640 for the replacement pin for the alu castor. It has the fine threads on the castor block pin.

    Alum c-blocks will stop the pin from bending, and the c blocks from breaking. Trouble is after this upgrade, smacking into things under power at speed, the impact will be transferred to the arms and bulkhead. The weakest part of this truck will be stronger. Doesn't mean another hard hit to the front wont break some other parts. After I became a little more aware the obstacles in the place I was bashing in, my need for aftermarket parts has almost disappeared. Bottom line, the less that this fast truck impacts things, the less mods you need.

    Ok. Thanks! Now trying to temporarily repair the caster block using gorilla glue extra strength, duct tape, zip ties, and effort.
    And there he goes with the carbon...
