RE­PLACE A SUS­PEN­SION ARM

Go from “broke” to “back in ac­tion” in no time

RC Car Action - - HOW TO - BY KEVIN HET­MAN­SKI

or truck from a kit, a bro­ken part is no big deal. Af­ter putting to­gether ev­ery­thing your­self, it’s easy to spot what broke and fig­ure out how to fix it. But for many RTR guys, some­thing as sim­ple and com­mon as a bro­ken sus­pen­sion arm can make it seem like their car is “to­taled” and will be a time-con­sum­ing and/or ex­pen­sive fix. Maybe the car just gets shelved, which is the big­gest bum­mer, be­cause repairs are way eas­ier (and way less ex­pen­sive) than you think. This how-to tack­les a bro­ken sus­pen­sion arm specif­i­cally, but sim­i­lar steps are used to iden­tify and re­place any bro­ken part. Time to DIY that RTR.

Whoops—that ain’t right.
