    What was the first thing you broke?

    After about 4 weeks with my e-revo I broke the outer bearings in one of my axle carriers. I have decided to replace them with acer racing ceramic bearings which I have read are good but expensive!

    I know it depends on your driving style but what was the first thing you broke on your e-revo and what did you replace it with?

    broke by itself: i think it was the shaft. 3rd run on nimh batteries and it broke on the upperside (diff)... i tried traxxas cvd's, and eventually went to losi driveline. shortly after the rear diff, and shortly after the tires.

    from crashes: first thing was an arm! put rpm since. after that well everything except the chassis.

    First thing for me was the axles.
    Broke the chassis where the rear body mount attaches.
    Next was crunchy diffs.
    Its All relative to your perspective.

    if you are driving dirt I would stick with stock bearing for about a $1 a piece. If you drive on the street only maybe ceramic... maybe....

    First real broken part rear body mount & alot of them till I started driving better & did the rear brace mod.......
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    The Spur gear. Right out of the box I drove it for 15 minutes and the motor must have been a little loose and stripped the spur gear. No big deal 5 minutes and I was back bashing. good thing i bought a smaller spur gear for the track i was building.

    A lot of people are breaking axles I can see. Interesting no one has mentioned bearings. May be my tyres were unbalanced?
