    Does anyone else keep breaking wheelie bars on their Outcast? I've already broken two of them and both in about the same spot. I really feel that this is a design issue with the bar itself it is solid until you get to the first screw then it is hollow and it keeps breaking off right at the first set of screws.

    I feel if Arrma would have made the entire thing solid it would be a lot more durable. The area circled in red is where I think Arrma needs to add some plastic in there.

    I tried repairing this one a few times.

    I've broken at least 4-5 of them. Like the stock rear A arms, they always break in the same spot.

    Glad to know I'm not the only one, just getting sick of replacing them @ $18 a pop all the time.

    My stock rear a arms didn't last a week.

    Reinforce it then in that spot...
    Strips of small aluminum angle bar bolted together (rigid)
    Or a fiberglass/resin reinforcement (semi-rigid)
    or
    gorilla glue reinforcement of some sort (flexible)

    I filled that in with a chunk of aluminum and some gorilla glue epoxy. I'll see how that holds up.

    I've broken the wheelie once exactly in the same area.
