Depending on what part you want to "bling" out with color, will determine if you should or should not buy. It also depends on what you do with your RCs. In other words, how hard do you bash?

LOL. What's wrong with this pictures?

I totally understand.Everybody likes a little bling on their RCs. For starters, just don't get aluminum shock towers, or suspension arms. They will transfer a lot of force to the chassis during a bad landing. You want some flexibility in the extremities of your RC if you're doing any kind of off-roading. Things like hubs, steering blocks, caster blocks, braces, and steering racks are all small compact items that I would swap out with fantasy anodized aluminum. Larger pieces of aluminum are easily tweaked in an accident.

You will get what you pay for.... I've had decent luck with Integy parts, just don't expect high quality for the price

Having had a vehicle with Integy on it before, I'd steer clear of that stuff (lower grade aluminum). Great for a shelf queen, bad for a basher/racer. Similar to what RustyUs said... all you're doing is relocating the stress to other components on the vehicle. You want to have some flex.
