    Hi,

    On my first run ever with the Fury I drove against my own foot, and the lower front suspension arm broke.
    I'm surprised that it broke as the impact was minimal.

    I couldn't find this part at RPM. So is there any upgrade part for the lower front suspension arm?

    This weekend on the track, the other arm snapped.
    Can anybody see if it's due to "bad" plastic or poor driving skills? (there seems to be an air bubble inside the plastic)

    You might have just got a bad batch of molded parts in your unit. I have been pretty hard on mine the past month racing indoor off-road and have not broke mine. I have had some pretty tough landings to and my driving is not very good.

    So far only broke the rear carrier/ball stud when I landed sideways.

    I got a few broken in a short time also.
    But the last I got has held up pretty good so far, some big jumps without issues

    No big jumps or hard crashes.

    It appears some of the parts are good quality and some are bad quality...
    Broke a few a-arms in a row, and the last set has held up great so far.

    The other thing I kept breaking was the rear body mount, snapped clean of the chassis
    Swapped that out for the rear body mount & bumper from the 2015 Fury and will see how those hold up.
    Also looks a lot better imho.

    You are doing it right making your own. Just machined some fury uppers to fit 16mm shocks.
