    Question Well what parts did you brake today my friends?

    Thought I would try and start an interesting thread here asking ya'll what parts and pieces you sadly destroyed today or in the past week? It's always interesting seeing what other people brake and having a lot in common.

    To start.... I recently broke my center drive shaft on my merv, but hey an easy excuse to get an upgrade!

    I also surprisingly with all my experience with gearing my merv striped a spur. (yes a very silly mistake)

    So the other question is: the part that you broke what did you replace it with?

    Recently wrecked the axles on my P4de. The bummer was it was only on 2s... I guess that can happen when you run a 2700 kv motor... However, I won an auction for some XO-1 CVDs with the correct bearings to drop into a p4de or sl4sh chassis. Best part? They came with 17mm adapters.

    Bent 2 front shocks and bottom screws that hold them in. And blew out the back holes on my new body... bought 2 new shafts and rebuilt shocks replaced bent screws with new and shoe gooed my busted body. Oh and a 550 t motor last sat. That got a new traxxas brushless system with 14 tooth pinion. It's a rocket compared to what it used to be.

    I somehow broke a few teeth of one of the gears in my transmission.
