    What should I buy?

    Ok just one more advice thread I promise
    Should I get:
    A: RPM axle carriers front and rear
    or:
    B: aluminum pushrods front and rear and aluminum steering linkages front and rear? (These are Traxxas red ones, I have heard good reviews about these.)

    Sorry for a FOURTH boring thread about "what should I do"

    I stayed with the metal pushrods cuz u can bend them back after a crash. The aluminum is just for looks really. Ive also though about different carriers too so id go with those.

    Can you get A and B?

    For strength stick with stock. Stock steel may bend but they dont break like the aluminum ones.
    For bling get the aluminum push rods, you cannot easily see fancy axle carriers, but the shiny red push rods will catch your eye with every pass.
    MAN, Use Common Sense.
    Outside? THERE IS NO BOX !

    Nope only got $50 to spend on ma Summit.
    I think I will get aluminum pushrods, the look is just so awesome! whenever I see someones E-Revo or Summit, that is always the thing that catches my eyes.
    I have had problems with the stock pushrods and linkage bending, and Traxxas says:
    "TUBES are 30% lighter than the stock steel toe links, plus they’re 4-times stiffer and more than double the strength of aftermarket titanium!"
    4 TIMES stronger!
    So I don't think I will have a problem snapping them.
    I have never broken a axle carrier, so I don't really think I need this.
    THANK YOU GUYS FOR ALL THE HELP ON MY FOUR BORING THREADS!
