Rpm products are definatly worth it. They are industructable, and if you do somehow manage to break a part they are guarenteed.

Yeah, RPM stuff is definately much stronger. I actually wore out a set of front arms for my rc10gt. Some people say that they flex too much and mess with the suspension tune, but I personally feel that if you are putting enough stress on them to flex them, then you are operating outside the effective parameters of the suspension system and chassis. Plus, if you do make them flex...they come back to their original shape.
