Man, two days in a row of things going bad with the Pede. I really want to finish my Slash MT to have a backup when I go out.
This happened today and I still can't figure out why other that metal fatigue. I was performing some lite jumps and then I notice one side was slammed to the grown and I knew something went bad, it would not move when I tried to pull it. I bent a rear shock shaft although at first I thought I was just out of fluid and it seized. I was able to bend it back when I got home but I don't trust it at this point.
Yesterday, on the opposite rear side, I had a set screw back off the MIP axle and it caused this damage. I only noticed this when I installed my second battery pack so I don't know how long I drove it with the pin exposed. I like to apply thread lock and let it sit for hours so my day ended within 40 minutes as well.
If you look at the top of the carrier you see the damage. Control arm got some attention as well. Not a huge deal but back to back short outings.
