The ECX line of 2wd bash-mobiles are some of our favorites. They are affordable, fun to drive, and can take a good bashing. However, their servo saver is on the weak side, and their bellcranks have some slop in them. The crew at RPM have come up with an affordable fix for those issues, a new bellcrank set that is more precise than stock and totally eliminates the servo saver. This should result in much more precise steering and better handling. The bellcrank is made from RPM’s legendary plastic and is intended to be used with a Kimbrough servo saver that mounts directly to the steering servo.
The street price is $11, it has a part number of #73492, and you can get more details at This Link over on RPM’s website.

Have you been modding your ECX 2WD to make it as tough as it can be? If so, you should put a set of RPM Heavy Duty Caster Blocks on your “to order” list.

The part number is #73442, they are street priced at $9, and you can get complete details at This Link over on the official RPM website.

For all you ECX owners, the good folks over at RPM RC have announced Front A-Arms for the Torment, Ruckus, and Circuit. In typical RPM fashion, the new arms were designed for extreme use, built much beefier than that stock units, yet with tighter tolerances to reduce slop. Larger bosses are used in the hinge pins areas to reduce breakage, while angled leading edges help the arms slide over objects. RPM also removed the tiny outer hinge pin screws, replacing them with an in-line screw to help improve overall strength. They also come with RPM’s limited lifetime warranty against breakage for piece of mind.
The part number for the arms is #70582, they have a street price of $12 per pair, and they should start hitting hobby shops later this month. For complete information hit up This Link to head over to the RPM website.
