    Not trying to be negative but I've had my truck for three years and I am pretty hard on it. I broke the stock servo saver and replaced it with stock once.

    Just occurred to me, there has to be a reason Traxxas has the length arms on the back they do. I wonder if the Slash arms change the handling and suspension?

    My truck has the RPM arms and Traxxas carriers. 6852x seem to clear everything fine. Haven't driven it yet but it's together and they turn smooth and don't hit anywhere.

    I've used the cheaper version of Dynamite tools for a few years. Never had an issue. When you need to replace a chassis they are way worth the money.
