    Not sure if you would call it broken but my steering saver bell cranks are worn so bad that I can hardly steer it.
    New set here this weekend.

    I currently own a limited edition 2WD Pede 4x4. I don't know how I did it but I bent the drive line and LHS didn't have any spares. RWD FTW!

    And I bent a shock shaft :|

    I lost that screw a couple of times. I solved the problem with a slightly larger and longer screw that goes all the way in to the bottom of the chassis pan. It's never come out despite several brutal crashes, one of which took a wheel off.

    I broke the magnet inside my motor today.... and dropped a cell on my 3s lipo at the same time. Motor took out battery or battery took out motor? Not sure, but it was an expensive trip up the road....

    Stripped a hex on one of my desperado's at the skate park, now I have to wait for my strc hex's to show up so I can glue them into the wheels and never worry about stripping them again.

    Seems I keep breaking the hpi grub pins that I use on my mip's. Wasn't a big deal until I lost half of one of the front drive shafts lucky for me I was bashing in a smallish area and found it about 50' away from my pickup.

    Starting to think about MIP's for the front since I'm starting to like my 3s LiPo.
    I've got MIPs on the back and IntegyXHD steel shafts on the front. They come already assembled at half the price, and look like a copy of the same design. So far, no problems except lost one grub screw. I replaced both w/ Traxxas 5145 pin that goes all the way throught the axle and output shaft, and loctited it in.

    My son and I took our Stampede's our four times this weekend. Twice on Saturday and twice yesterday. First outing at the park only a shock cap popped off on his. Now that we take out tool box everytime we take out the trucks, it was a quick 5 minute fix.

    After charging the batteries, we went out agian that evening before dark. This time I attached an older digital camera on mine hoping to get some video. Unfortunatly, a car came around the corner and my Stampede went under it. Didnt damage the Stampede, but hosed the camera.

    Nothing broke went we went to the park Sunday morning. Lots of fun was had though.

    Sunday evening we went to my sons school. He drove his Stamede and I let his little brother drive mine. Had a lot of fun flying around the grass field. Even had a girl ask if it was ok for her dogs the chase the trucks around. Everything seemes to go well until we got home and cleaned up the trucks. Found a bent front shock shaft on my sons and a broken axle stub on mine. Ordered a bunch of spare parts on eBay last night, and will pick up parts today at lunch to get us up and going while we wait for the spares.

    Seems like every weekend costs us about $5-$10 in parts. Not having enough fun unless something breaks. Just got to make sure we stay stocked up on spares.

    Now that you mention that, I bet my stub axle was broken before ever going out for the second time yesterday. In the morning we were running through a playground that had bark laid down that looked like a tree that went through a shredder. My sons chassis looked like it was being used as a shovel. I bet one of those little shreds of tree broke my stub axle.

    Had a good scare yesterday, thought I stripped another wheel on 3s turns out it was a broken hex pin.
    Good thing I keep spares in my pit box so it was a 5 min fix.

    I haven't broken anything on my P4de in forever since I don't really drive it much, but I do have a bit of carnage with the ERBE.

    2 days ago. Came off the ramp sideways, popped the balls out of the RPM knuckles.




    Yesterday. Double backflips in the street. First pic, broken rear skid and hinge pins and previously broken wheelie bar mount. Second pic, broken skid and front bulkhead.

    It's not too bad. I need to get a new chassis, all the scratches make it look bad. The bad part for the maintenance is that it's much more time consuming to work on and all the parts cost more than the p4de or sl4sh.

    is the 12mm hex system that bad, or are the wheel nuts just loosening up? I have run a ton of power through the plastic hexes, and have only rounded the hexes out if I forgot to tighten down a wheel nut?

    Just got done cruising the streets and aggrivating all the dogs. Hit a water meter in my neighbors yard. It was sticking out the ground surrounded by metal. I broke the front right protrac arm at the chassis pin and the camber rod end. Hope i can order just the front protrac arms.

    Didnt actually break anything, but lost a pin from one of my MIP rear axles. My son and I reveived our new 2S LiPos in the mail today, charged them and took the trucks out. Within 10 minutes I lost the pin.

    I purchased my Stampede used and it came with the MIP axles. Can't be sure that he put them together correctly, so I'm going to fully disasemble them and put them back together correctly. He did use some sort of threadlocker. Just not red or blue. It was either white or grey. Whatever he did, its going to get re-done right by me.
