    You did better than me, I lasted 15 minutes before I broke. Snapped the mounting tabs off of my ESC. Fixed it the next day, taken it out every day for 3 battery packs of run time with no other issues.

    My first, if I remember correctly, was twisting all of the half shafts off. Then I installed Teknos. Just upgrade as you go. Rear bearing carrier isn't very common breakage in normal crashes, but you were hit by another trucks so anything can happen...

    my first broken part was in 1992.....I'm too old to remember! LOL

    I think it was the rear shock tower on my RAD 2- I stripped out the hole for the inner camber link. Heck, I think I still have that part!

    Spur gear. Sigh. Second one was a drive shaft but I was driving like a mad person on a STICKY surface.
    Slash VXL, Rally VXL, and Stampede 4x4 VXL.
