    Help - Traxxas Stampede 6888x keeps breaking

    Hello all,

    I have a very important question for you. I have been driving for quite a while now, and after upgrading my parts to the Traxxas performance parts, and I keep breaking the 6888x front connection part.

    I have broken it three times! Is this normal?





    What can I do to fix this problem?

    Thanks for your help

    What motor combo and battery set up are you using? How is the truck being driven at the time of breakage? Others are going to want to know to help you out...

    I am using the stock motor with 5000mah Battery 11.1v. Regular runs, not doing jumps, flips or anything fancy.

    That sounds odd for that to be happening. Is your motor mount and bearing adapter tight? Thats the front hub isnt it? Does your front diff roll easy?

    I think I remember seeing a MIP front/rear made as an upgrade, could be FLM but I'm almost sure I've seen it on theMIP page.

    Seems as though something is binding to stress that piece so much it breaks...
