Default RE: How Do You Boil Parts?

boil the pvc pipe and walls on the track that keep jumpin in the way of your car, about 8 minutes on each side should do. just be sure to add a dab of salt to bring the boil up sooner. pvc gets soft when boiled tho so let it cool before you pull it out. actually i used to put the parts in a wire sift then dip them into the boil for about 5 minutes. they still broke the same, the car seems to be designed so the upper arms snap/break before anything else does, $4 part vs $15 in parts, kinda cool how they design that into a car. also the steering rod ends seem to do the same thing, very cheep fix during qualifying but costly in a main. good luck.
