Me and a buddy went bashing at the BMX track the other day, and I killed 4 upper a-arms. I ordered 4 sets of RPM arms (around 60 bucks for them all) and I get them friday. They look quite similar to the HPI ones. I got black, because I'm not a fan of the blue or purple ones. Here are some pics of my broken stuff.

They're great. One of the best upgrades I've made to my truck. Get them, you won't be sorry.

I run them, they are minutely larger. The biggest thing that makes them awesome is that they're all around stronger. Because they're made of a higher grade plastic than stock....15 bucks a set is worth it......

Well, I got my arms today and here is a comparison if the stock HPI. The uppers are a little thicker, however not much. The lower a arms are alot slimmer however. I don't have a pic of them though (I don't know why I didn't) They're definanetly a better plastic. Can't wait to put them thru the paces.

Yeah, I know what you mean, and you can see it in the pic. There is only 1 tab instead of the 2 on the stock HPI arms. Me and a buddy went bashing upto 256th, we found a nice spot that had alot of hard snow, it was good times. Didn't break anything.

With RPM anything you won't be sorry. Savage .25 stock are heavier than the RPMs and have less ground clearance than the RPMs too. The x are about the same weight and clearance as RPMs but RPMs are much stronger. I've jumped my 79 ford f150 4x4 severial times and never busted a thing. I have RPMs arms and steering knuckles on my Revo too and love them. I only wish they made uprights (steering knuckles) for the savage.
