Hi people. ;D Hoping someone can help. Need a part for my "TYCO" Radio Control Twin Turbo Lamborghini 1/12th. I'm not sure if it should be referred to as an A-arm but it is on the left (driver) side of axle. It has broken off the cylindrical piece with the screw that inserts into what would be the front axle. Anybody have what I need to get this car running true again??  ???  Happy to include pics if necessary.

EXACTLY!  ;)

cy·lin·dri·cal
   /sɪˈlɪndrɪkəl/ Show Spelled[si-lin-dri-kuhl] Show IPA
adjective
of, pertaining to, or having the form of a cylinder.

Best way to describe without pic I think.

Ok, Poptart, I'll check it out. Just got back from Vac so that's the reason for slow reply. Want me to bid and let it run or work it out between us?  ;) Arms not broke right? Pics seem to show arms intact.

Twin Turbo Indy??  :o I think you may have just passed on a little nugget of new knowledge there. At least for me. Sooo I could also be searching for this Indy model? Interesting. Any chance you got a pic or anymore info showing me what I'm looking for? BTW did you notice in that guy's description about both lower a-arms being cracked? Is the piece I'm needing considered the upper a-arm?  :-\

Yep you got it man lol they are the same chassis as long as there both twin's and yeah i did notice his description but  just figured you could flip them around and use the uppers as lowers,,Actually you can use the uppers as lowers i just disassembled mine and they are the same so as long as you only broke one or two your in good shape with that red lambo he has on ebay here is a pic of my twin turbo but any twin will do

Thanks man. 8) I bet those Indy cars were selling at the same time I bought mine but you know I don't remember. All I remember was that black shiny Lambo calling out to me!  ;D  Nice cars you got there. Looks like they may share wheels too.

are you talking about the balljoint type deal that connects the wheel to the control arm? or a arm?

Like this.  :)


There are two of these on the front suspension.



Sorry for small pic. The max allowed 512KB is not much.   ::)

Not sure how Poptart submitted the big pics but more power to him.  ;)
