thats what they said to me but they wont be ready for sale for atleast 4 weeks they are jsut goign to show them first on the shop site. i think its just away for them to make enuogh so they dont run out as i can see loads being sold on the first day this is what they said in the email i got about being ready for sale its the bit thats say`s widely for sale in the usa within a month so we should see them a few weeks after that hitting our shores


You're in luck. We're in the final stages of completing the molds for both front and rear a-arms for the mini 8ight. We're hoping to have them posted on our website by the end of the week. They should be widely available in the USA within a month after that. With respect to availability in Scotland, as soon as you see them posted on the RPM website, contact our UK distributor (CML Distributing) and make sure they get some in stock for you. I hope this helps.

Make your Losi Mini 8ight that much more bulletproof with RPM's newest front and rear a-arms for the Losi mini 8ight! Each RPM Losi mini 8ight A-arm starts with a beveled 30° leading and trailing edges and beefed up shock and anti-sway bar mounts.
The outer hinge pin support diameters have been beefed up to almost double the thickness of the stock A-arms while a more modest increase in size has been designed into the inner hinge pin support diameters as well.

Posted Image
Each Losi Mini 8ight RPM front and rear A-arm is molded in black out of RPM's extremely tough blend of nylons and are backed by RPM's industry-leading warranty against breakage. If speed is your thing, you need RPM armor on your ride!
Part #: 73552 - Front A-arms for the Losi Mini 8ight – Black
Part #: 73722 - Rear A-arms for the Losi Mini 8ight – Black
MSRP: $9.95 /pair

I MUST OWN THEM, want them in yellow though!!

I don't plan to jump straight in and buy these....but when I break an a-arm...this will be what I replace them with.

I am not bothered about colour as my preference would be black anyway.
