This item is discontinued and no longer available for purchase. You may want to search our site for a similar item.
This product was added to our catalog on May 25, 2011.This is a set of optional RPM Front A-Arms, and are intended for use with the Associated RC8B and SC8 vehicles. These RPM front A-arms are built with the same principles and design characteristics built into all RPM A-arms. Those design considerations include cleared areas known to rub on the stock A-arms. RPM also molded in the shock mounts, which means no more lost screws or extra weight from those screws on the arms. To help reduce slop in the suspension, RPM discarded the stock shock mount pin and setscrew in favor of a new 5-40 screw, which eliminates .004” of slop in the pivot and improves suspension accuracy. Leading and trailing 30-degree edges on the a-arms help the vehicle transition up and over objects too tall for the suspension to clear and as a side benefit, those angles improve suspension aerodynamics. All this with a weight that is identical to the stock arms!
RPM A-arms are molded in the RPM trademark blend of bulletproof nylons and are factory-backed by their industry-leading breakage warranty. Molded in black and sold in sets, including all necessary hardware in each package.

RPM SC8/RC8B Front Lower A-Arms (Black)
These arms are strong! The only donwfall to the RPM arms for the RC8 is the plastic piece that holds the front A arm hinge pin in. If your racing and have med-big jumps the plastic piece will swing down letting the hinge pin to back out. Im going to see if I can drill the arms like the OEM arms and put a screw in to hold the hinge pin.)
