    Found a hairline fracture on the left handside lower A-arm so I had to replace that also...

    And while I was at it I decided to change all 4 axle carriers... and re-greased the suspension's bearings.

    Dang...that is crazy!
    The center shafts are the only part I haven't yet had problems with.When I ordered the mip axles I went ahead and added the center drive shaft kit I figureed it would only be a matter of time b4 they would fail any how

    NIIICE..

    not always but one cause for the center shaft failures is a rock getting in under the center skid & starts rubbing.
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    Yup I think thats what it was...... as the car flew by it started making a clicking sound. I figured one of the diffs lost a tooth. Having a rebuild kit back home I thought I would run it till falure then open her up when I got home. WRONG diagnosis. Easier fix though

    I still need a Taller/Larger tire. For higher speed.....

    Finally got a break worth sharing.



    I am just happy I didn't find leaky diffs for once! One too many sideways landings fatigues this part. Luckily Losi listened to their customers and came out with HD outdrives part number LOSA3503

    I broke two a-arms today - now I know the "crack" damage sound from a bad landing.......

    Shimming will help them last longer. As long as you aren't on the throttle while landing. Seems like that may be the case since they are breaking so fast like that.

    You could also try lst/2 diffs. They fit in the bulkheads with modification.

    Blew out a rear tire on my first 5 minutes on 5s... guess it's time for tires now...
    I keep popping out one of the rear TRX CVD from the cup at the diff and stripped a upper ball stuff from the rear upper arm... Front bulk head is cracked around the lower part were the diff housing allen screws rest....

    remember, breakage is expected with air stunts
    All I need now is to set a new lap record.

    Hey I did that too on the 1717 in my revo.
    But I also hit a tree at about 50 so I am rebuilding everything I will post some pics later.
    I broke everything in the front but for some reason the TUBES are good to go, Traxxas did something right making them.
    They amaze me every crash.

    But i think I need to make a motor mount out of titanium though. Aluminum or steel is just bending every time.
    havnt failed I just found 1000 ways that wont work

    oh man I broke this on my Baja 5T and have not been able to fine it anywhere in stock 2 months.
    They are like 2 lbs each but in a 40 lb truck it broke on me.

    I'm sure my front diff finally bit the dust. Making lots of clicking noises. But noises don't stop me, so I bash on. lol

    Then it no longer coasts - when you let off the throttle, all 4 wheels lock up. haha

    I'll open her up tonight.
