    alloy arms are not the best idea, reason is they transfer shock to other parts and they will bend also. stick with plastic your parts will thank you....

    I can’t say for sure what they are, I’ve never seen them before. If you end up not wanting to wait to find a match and wanna part with them let me know. I collect odd parts. Many aftermarket manufacturers try and get in the market and didn’t make it so all kinds of random parts are out there. A lot of one offs too that people made them self, since those are anodized I don’t think they were a diy.

    They are milled like golden horizon used to do. They didn't have many sharp edges on their stuff, it all had a nice radius if it wasn't an area where fitment would be impacted. I used to run some of their stuff many years ago when I had a t-maxx.

    I seen a pair on eBay that looked very much like the two you have and they were HPI racing parts.

    Only saw some HPI branded ones on the uk site, but they don't look the same.

    Found what appears to be the same ones on another forum in a post from 2009:
    https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?1062469-HPI-Racing-Savage-XL-5-9-with-Aluminum-A-Arms-(RTR)#post12421052

    Doesn't list the brand though.

    I was thinking GH Hobby (Golden Horizon) because of the rounded edges, but I checked on www.wayback.com and found old images from 2008, they aren't the same... :(

    Sorry about that I thought they were the ones. Unless they are the golden horizons like before mentioned in at a loss. I have a set of hcr that look similar as well but not a exact match.

    I don't know why I thought they weren't GH... looking at the photo today, they do look the same. I must have been blind yesterday.
