    I wouldn't bother with aluminium arms, as they will just add unnecessary weight and unlike plastic, when they bend they don't bend back on their own. Rpm has new wide arms that'll give you higher...

    The Ofna MT3 Splits wheels are a full negative offset wheel, meaning the mounting point is right at the inner edge of the wheel. Since the center of the wheel is "zero offset" and the width of the...

    No-flange pivot balls aren't as common as they used to be as they can cause linkage binding issues. Many of the no-flange pivot balls I have around didn't come by themselves, but we're one part to a...

    If a tight budget is truly the case here, then it makes even more sense to recommend a $100 brushless system. Even the cheapest brushless system will outlast and outperform the best brushed motors...

    I have no experience with their bearings, so I can't say if they are any good or not, but I have two of the ski kits and my nephews run they're skis as well and they work great.
