    What was the first part you broke on your 2WD Slash?

    Right front caster block and A-arm.

    Took the truck out of training mode, went about 40 feet, hit a curb
    Truck goes summersaulting through the air, pieces are flying off the truck. "Sorry Ben, I broke the truck, time to go home." Super glued that plastic back together, bolted the truck back together, and back to the school parking lot... in training mode.

    well my bro broke my front a-arm smacking into the curb at 25-30mph, but first thing I broke was rear bearing carrier, after that my servo horn, other than that nothing besides my stock slash body is missing nearly half of the back haha

    Got my truck broken. Haha. Needed a tranny rebuild when I got it. But it was a trade for an xbox with the red ring so both our trades needed money to get them working. First thing I actully broke was a caster block tho.

    First break was a hard hit to the curb with a rear tire and broke a shock cap (get aluminum ones!) Then I kept breaking steering casters and steering blocks (get aluminum casters!) Other than that it takes a good hit break anything else.

    Bent and blew out rear shocks / shock caps. And also a rear hub. First time at the track didn't call out my crash on the straight and a 1/8th scale at full speed smashed me from behind. His buggy was fine...lol

    Front bearing carrier.....replaced that and 10 mins later broke the rear A arm. Didn't have that replacement. Done for the day. I had a stretch in the first month i owned it where I broke something nearly everytime I used it. Weather was cold and the stock parts and rpm parts break in the cold for me at least.

    Learned real quick how to strip down half my truck and then back together in under 30 mins.
