    After driving for a full 3s 5000Mah battery pack. Found that I only had three wheel drive. Broken right front axle stub. Sheared off the ears and lost, but then found axle shaft half on the ground. It is possible to have caused any damage to the diff since there was no load on one side?

    Chances are you did no damage but it sounds like you need to upgrade from plastic half shafts to something stronger especially if you plan on running 3s

    Yup. I have MIP Xdutyes in the rear but have not forked over $60 bucks for the front yet. I'll tell you.
    There was no signs of wear to the fronts. No twisting or egging. just snapped!

    I had MIPs in the rear for a while, just broke my second front stock axel. I got a set of front MIPs from eBay for $50 shipped. Crazy to spend $100 just upgrading the axels but the MIPs are top quality and a replacement stock axel is $10 each.

    MIP's are awsome and I just wish I took more pics but I use a "modded' set of Rustler rears to fit the sock length a-arms which are the same ones used on the pro-trac kits.
    I just think it has less axle slop this way but that that's jmo.




    If you look at the left side you can see what it looks like in running condition.

    Last night my son broke a front stub axle and I thought I has stripped a sput gear. Turned out a rock got stuck netween the slipper adjustment nut and chassis. It completly loosened the slipper clutch to the point where it wouldnt move at all.

    But we had a really good time until we couldnt drive anymore. As we were walking back home, carrying our Stampedes, we joked that we need to build an R/C tow truck for when this kind of thing happens.

    Playing at the local bike park, hit a 6 foot tall table top, got about 12 ft of air, traveled about 25 feet and came down front bumper first into the next ramp. Snapped the battery post off at the threads and tossed my 3's battery through the body..... So nothing major today.

    Piston chipped and a small fragment got lodge inside the case on my 3.3 jato. Took it to LHS and he said he never saw that before. Called support and they said...send it in. Keep in mind that I always run a bit on the rich side with plenty of smoke. Well, here's the kick in the pants. Traxxas won't replace it, nor will they send my old engine back. So much for brand loyal !

    I was driving my P4de down my street at full speed. My son was driving my P2de, he came across the street right into the path of my P4de. BAM!!!!!! My P4de survived. Must be the RPM A-Arms. The P2de suffered a broken right front tie rod. Totally fixable. Surprised the damage was not more than it was.

    Found a new weak point in the drive line, seems after doing some 3s speed runs on the beach in damp sand with trenchers, mip's and slipper set to full tight I managed to rip the screws out of the diff carrier that attach the ring gear luckily all the gears were ok just had to replace the screws and carrier case.

    Learned that when the bearing inside the slipper goes bad it loosens up so no drive then

    Sounds like you snapped the rotor shaft inside the can. Been there, done that. Time for exchange.

    Sorry to hijack thread!
    There's supposed to be grease in the dif cases f/r. The fluid is 30K oil in the front dif housing (round black piece) which is inside the dif case. The rear dif is filled with grease. I've switched my rear dif to 100K fluid to get the positraction effect. Some people use "horsie grease" or STP. The black grease looks like "sludge" after a while.

    That was hard for me too, and I put off the fronts as long as I could. In retrospect, it's probably the best $100 I've ever spent on it and greatly improved uptime. By that I mean more runs before you have to fix anything, even on 3S every day.

    Did some more beach running yesterday till I snapped another hpi screw/pin on one of my rear mip's, makes me wonder if ther is a better pin out there cause I been breaking these often on 3s.

    At least I have no downtime. I didn't want to wait when I separated the magnet on my original motor. Sent it in for replacement and bought a new one from the lhs. The new one from Traxxas came in today

    And the one I bought at the lhs is going out for replacement tomorrow

    Guess I was wrong about downtime. The seized velineon took my VXL-3S with it
    I've seized a couple of motors, but the ESC must have shut itself down like it should. You might give Traxxas a call as it may be bad and not work (shut down when it should) with your new motor if you overcook it.

    Its most likely a bearing internally. Just get a VXL motor rebuild kit. ~$8
    Everything overpowered...

    Keep the comments coming guys and gals.
    Are you reinforcing them around the body mounts and weak points? I got 11 months out of my stock body that I run every day and hit several telephone poles at high speed, etc. I'm now running a Raptor body now that has some cracks around the roof and one in front from a telephone pole that's been repaired. I put a thin steel plate in the bed of the stock body (underneath) so that the mounting pins actually went through that metal. I think that's why it lasted so long.
