    Went riding today up in the mountains. Rained the other day in so Cal so dirt was damp.great traction until
    What have you broke more than once?

    I have broken a few titanium pillow balls replaced them all with steel.
    worst part it broke off deep inside the fairly new rpm arm. No way to get it out without weakening the arm!

    I broke too many front bumper mounts (always have a spare now), but fixed the problem by driving better (and the "T" summit brace).

    I could use that bracket. I worked on my friend's summit this morning and saw that part. Definitely useful...

    Actually there is a way... Dip the arm into some battery acid (H2So4) and leave it overnight ....and I think HCl would also work

    ON the Slash, two rear CVs and we keep blowing the tires apart--LOL. On the Summit, 2 ring gears(as a result of a hobby store tightening the slipper clutch too much, I think), 2080 Servo on 5" tires. Of course the bodies are pretty beat up.

    front bumper twice, stock servo 4 times in 1 and a half years, and both battery doors. rubber bands hold the battery in pretty well though.

    Lol. Everybody around here hates Integy. My Integy parts are doing fine. Everyone seems to love the GPM shocks, that's the only thing on my slash that's broken twice. My rear ones have been permanently removed but the springs live on. The stockers have yet to pop open. I have the strangest luck sometimes.
