Heavy-duty steel pins provide a secure connection between the suspension arms and the heavy-duty shock rod-ends front and rear.
The gearbox input gears and drive cups key together, ensuring you still have drive in the event of the attachment screw loosening.
The screw holding the drive cup to the input gear is held in place in the molded composite sleeve. No more relying on thread lock to keep this assembly together.
Also receiving the ARRMA Safe-D treatment is the pinion and motor shaft assembly. The Spektrum 4074 2050Kv motor features a 5mm shaft with a groove that accepts a pinion retaining e-clip. The included stock and optional speed pinions are ARRMA Safe-D design that is keyed to the motor shaft by using a D-shaped hole. These design features assist with retention of the pinion gear should the set screw loosen.
The geometry of the aluminum rear shock tower, rear suspension arms and the coil-over-oil shock absorbers has been refined to provide more a plush rear end with increased travel to better absorb landings when you send it.
The more compact rear shock tower is less exposed so better protected from being bent from upside-down impacts.
