Default Why does every one hate Integy?

I am just wondering why every one dislikes integy products? Every one says that every one else is better but why? I would just like to know every ones thoughts on it.

The aluminum is extremely crappy, and it's design allows for it to break easily.

I find that integy has the nicest looking aluminam out of alot of products.There tools and heat sinks are flawless.At least the stuff i have.

I've hit stuff going 40mph, and the plastic didn't break, yet the stupid aluminum bent on 20ph? That's pitiful. Stick with the stock plastic

I never had any aluminum chassis parts except a heatsink.I just puled one of my heatsinks for 540 motors off and i will say it douse feal kinda soft and bendy.But that wont make a difference if its a tool handle or a heatsink.

do you guys realize how hard it is on some thing to take a hit like that? 20-25 x 11 pounds = 220-275 pounds of pressure on one part, and you expet plastic to last? And it wasn't eaven a square hit, i also broke a a-arm and a hing pin.

Yeah, 20mph would definitely bend most stuff out there. The Plastic would have bent too and probably broken your bulkead when the swingset pole came in contact with it. Plastic survives longer because it rebounds from bending. That skid plate prolly saved you a little cash in that crash.

Well i have integy shocks and they don't leak, and every one i know who runs them has no problem with leaking, all you got to do is tighten them, and mine are over 6 months old and have no problems.

infact hear is a review typed by me. http://www.rcjunkyard.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4548

Aha, yet 40mph won't do it? I question this statement from person experience with a WOT smash into a wall. Integy metal sucks, and that is a fact, not an opinion. If something like that bends at 20 mph, plastic should shatter, or break. But it doesn't, because aluminum shouldn't bend that bad except for a crash at WOT. And "most stuff out there" is 10x tougher than integy, and won't bend from that wimpy of a crash.

so if i buy a engine form you and i don't tighten down the head screws, can i send it back because it has no compression? And then go tell peaple something that is true only because of misuse? Sorrey if i sound harsh but some of you guys do that, nad it makes me mad. NO one around hear has the Jewls to go agenst what anyone else says, wethere its wright or its wrong, im not pointing out anyone , im just saying that it happens everyday.

Its not misuse, your example is pretty different. This hobby is all about spending money money money, and ultimately the phrase goes "you pay for what you get." You really cannot compare crashes because every slight change will change alot of things.
