    Broken Agian!

    Well apparently this truck hates me, the stock drive shaft hub where the wheels go keep snapping off the drive shaft after what I consider light bashing. This is twice, good thing I have tekno m6 kit coming with the steel hubs, can't wait. I hope it stops breaking lol, it seems every bashing attemp I break something.

    Are you using the slipper or the differential?

    What diff oil are you using? Or how tight is the slipper?

    What are you doing? Landing badly a lot? Over 2 months of bashing now and nothing broke here and it's all stock bar the ally bearing.

    I Am using 3s 6400 , no jumps at All actually. I have the stock slipper and it's seems pretty loose. Hopefully after the teknos it will stop breaking lol. All I really do is take it through dirt and some light to med short vegetation. My guess is its a combo of the 3s lipo and some of the vegetation I power through.

    A 3s and stock driveshafts are not a good combo unless you make the slipper loose as you can without burning the clutch out or use throttle a bit more chilled manbut once you have put your teknos on you will be sorted

    dude dont be scared lol, they are awesome! seriously it's a whole new truck when you get one in, however the only down side is ya break crap sometimes. good thing there is great aftermarket for this truck and you can make it basically bullet proof, I am half way there. I should have upgraded to teknos sooner.

    I do have a 3s battery too. I may have a try. It just seems fast and jumps well where I take it as is so not bothered trying it. I was also aware the faster the more breakage lol
