    SC mounts broken

    Any advice on how to fix the speed control mounts being broken? The blue plastic is snapped off at the screws at those 2 places.

    Try getting velcro or esc tape at your LHS. That's the only way to do it since both blue plastic mounts on the ESC already snapped off.

    Screw a flat plastic plate to the mounts and use some servo tape or double-sided mounting tape (just as goog, cheaper and easier to find) to stick the ESC to it.

    +1 velcro. The heavy duty stuff might be better.
    Make it idiot-proof and along comes a better idiot

    When you get a new one, use a longer screw that ends flush with the bottom of the chassis and this won't happen. Surprised Traxxas hasn't changed this yet as it's so easy.
