    Wait until the parts break to replace them. RPM A-arms are a good replacement. RPM rear bearing carrier. MIP X-duty CVDs payoff over time. The stock front drive shafts lasted me a while while the...

    My rears would snap in seconds on 3s. Get the MIP XDuty CVDs for the rear. My stock fronts lasted me 10 months with occasional 3s use. However, I did replace them with MIP after they broke. eBay...

    My understanding...the more vertical the shock is (bottom mount far in, top mount far out) the more travel and softer the shock will be. The more horizontal the shock (bottom mount farther out the...

    Looks cool! It also looks like it's going to put a lot more stress on the shock tower just because of leverage. I guess if you're not bashing that might not be a problem.

    I want to know the same thing. I just got the front set for my Stamped 4x4 and I didn't see these spacers (10127).

    The thing is the stock parts aren't terrible and I haven't broken them yet. They have developed some play after 10 months of use. In my experience the RPM parts are strong but are also made better...

    Why no RPM steering parts?

    I just emailed RPM, but does anyone know why RPM doesn't make caster blocks or steering blocks for the 4x4s? I'd honestly rather have RPM stuff vs the aluminum alternatives.

    I had MIPs in the rear for a while, just broke my second front stock axel. I got a set of front MIPs from eBay for $50 shipped. Crazy to spend $100 just upgrading the axels but the MIPs are top...

    I bet your Trenchers are > 8 inches tall at those speeds. Mine's got all original front end components after 9 months and there's definately a good amount of slop. I understand you expect more, but...

    I've never had it do anything to the paint inside my boddies. It's flexible so it doesn't try to pull the paint off. YouTube "reinforce RC body" or "shoe goo RC body". IMO you don't have to do...

    I still put at least one layer of drywall tape and shoe goo on the inside of any body I use. It is very helpful and doesn't add much thickness. I'll add about 1.5" square around the mounting holes...

    I was going to say G-locs as well. They are pretty small in diameter so you'll loose some speed. They don't eliminate ballooning either but they're they best I've seen without modifications. I'd...

    I don't think you "need" to replace the front with MIP right away. I've been running 9 months with only the rear MIP on 2s and 3s with the stock VXL. I've clocked it doing 58 on the street, run it...
