I've wanted to join the ERBE league since I first bought my 1:16 at the start of this year. I just posted a thread last night in the mini erevo forum asking, "who here has gone from 116 to the big guy?" Since then I keep getting pm's saying:
"differentials always break"
"bulkheads are crap and always break"
"shafts break all day every day"
What the heck!?!? I've driven my car in to a pole and that snapped the chassis, bulkhead etc.. the standard repair when you drive your car full speed in to a solid object. It seems that just DRIVING will shatter the ERBE!? I don't want to spend $750 to then have to turn around spend another $20 on gas, and $25 on parts, each day!
Am I reading correctly? I mean I plan on driving around my grass/pavement on 4s, I'm not big on jumping at all but I'm big on slow/fast driving. I don't want to do 60mph or get 6feet in the air.
I've loved the look and setup of these cars but all of the sudden it seems they are a major nightmare!
