    Beefing up my front end...

    I already have RPM A-ARMS along with the T-Bone racing bumper and servo guard installed on the pede. Just wondering if these two are worth it for the stampede 4x4. The price however...

    If you have any cheaper alternatives to beef up the front, please feel free to post up.

    Thanks in advance guys!

    You can buy them a little cheaper off ebay as a combo. If you are interested in adding the rear carriers to, a seller has that option. Check the link below.

    You can order the same parts from STRC with a few more shades of anodize. Doubt you will save much if any vs the Traxxas. I consider Traxxas ones like fine jewelry. Even though I do use STRC and they've done me well to.

    Hope this helps ya.

    Thats a really decent deal for the complete set! Traxxas aluminum parts are top notch for sure!

    Those parts to me a worth it. I broke a about 3 rear carriers before I switched to aluminum. Haven't had a problem since

    Aluminum bearing carriers and C blocks are good for upgrading the front. I tried aluminum on the rear but then went to RPM plastic rear carriers that I like a lot better. It's a pain changing bearings on the aluminum rears since they're both the same size, and the races tend to get stuck in there when you blow one apart.
