    Wow, $120 for the set... I think these will be a replace as they break part. No issues with my arms yet, but lighter weight does sound good.

    My thoughts exactly lol

    I have broken an upper arm but it was $7 to get another one. Do i buy a new rpm set at $30 or buy a stock arm at $7 is the question i have to ask myself.

    Considering the price difference from a stock revo to RPM is about 400% to upgrade, the 200% price difference to upgrade the x-maxx arms isn't so bad actually.

    Don't forget, the price is "suggested retail". Wait until Tower Hobbies or Amain marks them down. I'll bet you can get a full set for about $80. Not bad considering the warranty and they're made in the USA.

    i like the 'universal fit' deal. then you can just keep one spare set in your box instead of a spare left and a spare right set.

    Plastic (stock) and nylon (RPM??) arms will take a few knocks - flex a little where the alloys won't, but for 4x stock price, I would have expected a couple of extra mounting points on the RPM.

    I've gone alloy as I don't plan on dropping mine 50'+ from a cherry picker / jump over houses and like 'bling', plus the alloy arms give shock mounting options.

    I got a full set plus the rear carriers from FFRC, $420.00. The best comes at a price. I don't worry about them anymore, had them for 3 months, no broken tie bars either.

    When I put my CNCs on all of the stock composites were warped and that is not on purpose. 2 were cracked on the uppers. I love the CNCs and once the sticker shock was done, i'm fine with them. That ends the next step for my bombproofing my rig.

    RPM Arms For X-Maxx!!!....Out of Stock

    I'm all for rpm and their products are great, but I see one fundamental problem with them. Since the X is a very heavy truck and the arms can go through major stress. RPM arms are designed to flex (a little) so it absorbs the impact vs cracking. The arms could flex enough that the dogbone might slip out of the drive cup and you would damage it by flinging it around because it's not connected. Then again, rpm might have designed the arms to prevent this. We will have to see.

    Just found an option for a full set for under $100 on ebay from a reputable seller free shipping for orders over $68 so if you buy all 4 sets for your X-Maxx it'll come to $99.96 any takers?

    I bought a full set of stock A arms on eBay for $32 that someone had take off their X-maxx as soon as they bought it so they were never used. It's much more economical to replace broken ones. IMO.

    I only need/want the lowers. My uppers are DRC & they haven't designed the lowers yet.

    Since the lowers are so much bigger, I'd pay a larger portion if someone wanted to split a full set?

    I have them and like them. I learned the hard way, that you need to use captured hinge pins. If you don't the hinge pin will slide out especially on warm days.

    I had this happen with the pins. What are "captured hinge pins" and where would I find them?

    Mrbails, captured hinge pins are basically screws with a long shoulder used as the pivot or hinge. The head of the screw "captures" the a-arm on one side while the nut "captures" the a-arm on the other side. RPM lists what most people are using on their website but for easy reference, they recommend CEN #GS025 hinge pins - http://cenracing.shptron.com/p/gs025...inge-pin-4mx56
