    Weak points...

    Okay guys I know your thinking.. Awww not one of these again

    But this ones different..
    So these are my current upgrades..
    -avid bearings all around
    -rpm rear shock tower
    -wheelie bar..
    -castle mmp and 3800kv motor.
    Think that's all..

    And so Im buying a STRC skid.. 16.50$
    So I need a relatively cheap part to get me over the 20$ mark.
    Why the 20$ mark..

    Because for every purchase over 20$ my LHS gives you a stamp and once there are 10 stamps on your card you get 20% of your next purchase

    So I just need a rpm part or something

    So just list all the parts you have broke from day one
    The most common break.. *other then rear carriers and castor blocks and steering blocks
    Will be on my wants list
    If they don't have the #1 most broke part I'll ask for whatever comes as #2
    Thank and all answers appreciated

    rpm gear cover?
    aluminum shock caps?
    tie rods?
    more spur gears for this summer heat?
    hex screws?
    servo tape(always handy)?

    I got a lot of spurs.. Like 30
    And I'm slowly going to hex screws.. I've already bent 3 of the philippes
    I guess I can go with screws
    Or aluminum shock caps will be nice but I doubt there will be green ones..
    I just want durability upgrades..
    Maybe tie rods

    Since we're talking rpm stuff, go ahead and get the arms for front and rear befOre the protrac kit really took off, everybody had a lot more rpm hooked pede's. I know I did. If you can live with a wider truck, that doesn't need tires rotated.. Rpm arms with nitro front carriers and spindles from a rustler will widen and level the front an rear. You'll need nitro front wheels too, but that's just as wide as a protrac'ed rc and rear toe can be achieved withthe rpm gear box. Wheel selection becomes limited, tho. Bit still. You can bust right thru the 20$ budget, get wide, upgrade in your own right and do it with rpm.

    Ehh..
    It's a good idea but not what I want..
    Maybe just the rpm arms

    No it's 20$+
    And one stamp a day..
    Trust me if I could do that I would have
    (3000/20=150 stamps) that means 15 full 20% off certificates
    I wish..

    Rod ends, if u dont have a pack of em , nows the time to grab em. It comes in handy when yer doin those wide mods to slap the longer/shorter end on to make up the difference.
