    They're stiffer than RPM from what I've seen. Basically a stiffer nylon plastic that's on par with what every other manufacturer's cars come with stock. It's about time

    I know the stock arms Arrma uses on my Senton are pretty tough.
    I like RPM products but it’s good to see something like it coming OEM from Traxxas.

    I actually thought these were new, but after seeing the party numbers, I realized these (specifically the rear, which are used front & rear on the 4x4s) are the exact same as on my Rustler 4x4 purchased over a year ago.

    The front arms are new for the 2wd rustler,slash, and stampede. Youíre correct about the rear arms, they are the ones that came out when the rustler 4x4 did.

    Are the ones on the rustler 4x4 compatible with the stampede 4x4 and stronger than the original vxl stamped 4x4 arms? Just curious for when I replace the RPM's due to warping/stretching that they tend to do after a year or so.

    It fits stampede 4x4, even with the shock guards. It flexes a little more but not nearly as much as RPM.

    I think the colors for the new 2wd arms are brighter, they seem to pop more. That green is killin it imo, so is the red.

    I meant the hyperlink on the actual site which your screen shot depicted.

    I just went to the Traxxas site, and itís all working now. Looks like they added more pics to the page than just the one rustler pic with the red arms. Go give it a try and see if itís working for you.
