    I've been considering those A-arms since before they were released (they were listed on the Traxxas website, but no one, including Traxxas, actually had them available). How does the weight compare...

    That might be because Traxxas designed the Rustler 4x4 to handle only up to 3S. I'm NOT suggesting you use...or even try...a 4S pack, but if you do, you'll have to figure out your own way to strap...
