Front suspension arm issues

Anyone else had the problem of the lower hinge pins blowing out the side of the suspension arms on collisions?

Wasn't "wrecking" I'm talking impacts at moderate speed. Not anything that you would expect to cause such damage. Actually the first time it happened I didn't even hit anything, was just cornering at high speed and it happened. Anyway I've ordered replacement rc18t aluminum arms. I was just wondering if this was an issue for anyone else, if it was a weak spot for the t100.

Not to say there hasn't ever been a case of a defective part, but the reality is that something like a suspension arm just falling apart or snapping out of the blue is impossible.

Second thing is what is "moderate speed" in one person's mind is slamming the hell out of it in someone else's. Along those lines is that people forget two things: if they ran into something with their real car at a similar speed that they'd break something, so why not their RC; and these things are not as tough as people want to think they should be.

And finally, it's wasn't THAT wreck that broke it it was the previous wreck(s). Things seldom break as a direct result of your most recent crash - but instead were damaged (cracked) previously and were only hanging on by the barest of threads only waiting to fully break later.
Umm no.

'Cause you're back to your same old games. Same old song and dance. Just a different version. You stir the pot and then play all innocent. You know what you do and deny everything when caught with your hand in the cookie jar.
Kind of pitifull really.

I get my meds checked all the time, because of my disability. But my abuse of my meds caused me to lose my wife and kid, and now I just sham society by working under the table at the local hobby shop while telling the government I can't work. LOL

Sorry to hear the latest stint in rehab didn't work out Wee-Willie. Chemical dependency can do weird things to people, I promise one day the dillusional thoughts and voices will stop, just hang in there as long as you can. Don't forget to wear your helmet, in case you fall. Oh, and sorry to hear about the impotency issues, but once you get off the toxic mix there might be hope.
