Has anyone found any aluminum replacement suspension arms that will fit the torment? It's getting cold here and parts will be breaking, I would like to find some stronger parts to stand up to the cold!

I run my torment with a 3980kv mostly on 2s but sometimes on 3s. I will post pictures of the broken suspension arms (front left and rear right) as soon as I get my replacement parts installed...

If your breaking arms switching to aluminum will just cause a differnt part to break and the aluminum to bend. Aluminum suspension arms are really just for looks unless you change the whole suspension to aluminum the arms will just transfer the force to the next plastic part and break that part, plus you will bend the aluminum arm and it will never be truly straight again.

Yeah, stick with the plastic for arms. As Bunzo said, you will break parts harder to get to, and if the arms bend, they are MUCH more expensive to replace, unlike plastic.
