Rampage sounds good, but i bought this aluminum part from Nitro shop over 2 yrs ago, this part is a flaw!!! I had to epoxy the two white holes to stop the suspension rod pins from sliding out!!!!! what is the fix for these holes?? I asked the guy from the nitro shop and he never had an answer for me, this was 2yrs ago, not sure if there is some sort of fix instead of buying the factory plastic that brakes?????????RampageHopUps said:OK, after beating the crap out of my Buggy on a 1/8 scale track, with a very poor driver......... You can gain some massive strength in the suspension, especially in the diff area.
Its a very easy mod to do. The plastic suspension arm holder has plastic nubs that align it with the chassis holes. Drill through the existing chassis hole, into the nubs, all the way through. Then countersink the existing holes in the chassis to accept a flat head screw. Just use a M5 screw, and a locknut.
This mod will help the 4 bottom diff screws to stay in place, and give you much needed strength around the a-arms. I am going to do all 4 of my supsension arms, its that easy.
The aluminum suspension arm holders are now available from Redcat, and I believe this should be done on those as well to gain strength.
Front End Suspension Arm Holders
Rear End Suspension Arm Holders
All you need to do is cover up the holes Rampage!!!! The Nitro shop I noticed is still selling these parts after 2 1/2 years, they really need to stop selling them in place of the plastice part, the car is unfunctional with this part, the whole purpose is to fix the current problem not create a new problem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! or offer a fix with that part!!!!!!!!! here is the clip of what happens with that part!! this was 2 1/2 yrs agaoRampageHopUps said:Yeah, I don;t know who decided a thru hole was going to work, but thats a fail. My aluminum version didn;t sell as well as I needed, so I discontinued them. Maybe I will re-think about making some more.
If you start making these again I will be buying a few sets of fronts and rears would be awsome if you made them again.
