My Slash 2wd is a tank, the RPM arms are amazing, I did tons of flips with my Slash today, I had a ton of weird landings, it’s still fine and intact. I recommend the rpm caster blocks and rear bearing carriers, they are super strong (mainly if you bash pretty hard).

On my slash I haven't broken any caster, steering blocks or axle carriers. On my rustler 2wd I upgraded to aluminum caster and steering blocks. I didn't get the traxxas ones I got the Hobbypark ones that were about $20 cheaper than the traxxas ones.
Very cool, post some pics.
Just got my tool kit in and screw/nut kit in. The RPM arms and bulkhead for rustler will be here Friday-Monday.

Me and my dad ran into each other. I had my slash and he had the rustler. On the rustler it broke the stock plastic bellcrank and on the slash I broke one of the shock caps on the stock ultra shocks. I had the slash for 5 years so I just upgraded the shocks to the Big bores. Now on the slash I have these hobbypark shocks.

Wow, my shocks and shock caps have been perfect, I got the car 3 years ago and no issues or breakages with them.

The suspension is alot softer now. For the shocks I am running my extra pair of big bores in the front and the stock ultra shocks in the back. Once I get the rear big bore shocks rebuilt I will put it in the rear and keep the ultra shocks for extra. For the rear big bore I need the rod ends where it goes into the arm. I an going to order those tonight.
