    Was just trying to find out how well the aluminum ends would hold up compared to the plastic on other brands.

    I got the traxxas ones and i have not had a problem with them and they look great with their nice red color which is half of the battle at least for me

    When ur buying aftermarket parts u have to keep in mind that althought aluminum parts are stronger than plastic they are also rigid. Plastic is flexible and can absorbe shock without damage. Sometimez more than aluminum. Having plasic rod ends is a petfect example. The aluminum push rod is not going to break but the plastic rod ends will flex and absorbe shock that the aluminum won't. Thats y traxxas push rods and tie rods are setup that way. Also plastic gives u a weakest link. Better to break a plastic rod end then to make it so tough the same impact breaks ur plastic bulkhead instead. Personaly I'd recomend going with traxxas parts when u can (they know what theyr doing) and use rpm parts for the other stuff. Rpm is good stuff because u get all the benefits of plastic in a beefier setup. I hope this explination helps.

    Ordered some spare gpm rod ends, see how they hold up this time. Otherwise I will get the traxxas ones.
