Went riding today up in the mountains. Rained the other day in so Cal so dirt was damp.great traction until
What have you broke more than once?
I have broken a few titanium pillow balls replaced them all with steel.
worst part it broke off deep inside the fairly new rpm arm. No way to get it out without weakening the arm!
I've ruined a few carb bodys...
* "If it ain't broke, your doin it wrong" *
Definitely been there!
Never do anything half fast. Hey Ya'll, watch this
actually haven't broken anything on my merv yet besides trashing my parma dune buggy body. Went to my local track in scottsdale an got to drive my merv in open practice worse thing that happen besides many nose first crashes while trying to take a 1:10th scale jump was loosing a wheel nut on the straight away going about 35 mph... was fun though first time on a track!
rear rocker and also just broke the steering block under the car. But fixed with a few bucks
Rear diff, steering knuckle, bell crank, 2080 servo, u joint, center diff, toe link. This is all at least twice. I must love this hobbie.
Modded to the Max
Drive it like its Hot
I have broken lots 4 2080 servos and a diff a arms pushrods skid plates all sorts of things.
"Brakes? Who needs them? They only slow you down"
Lately, it's been rear bulkheads...been snapping them clean in half.
Maybe time for a t bone or aluminum bulkheads!
Seems like it...haha
I broke too many front bumper mounts (always have a spare now), but fixed the problem by driving better (and the "T" summit brace).
1/16 EREVO, 1/10 SUMMIT
i have that bracket but it won't work with my bracket!
I could use that bracket. I worked on my friend's summit this morning and saw that part. Definitely useful...
I also bent a rear cvd on the last ride. Found that out when I pulled it apart to reshim. Took 3 shims rode twice breaking it in and needed one more
fortunately for me, nothing yet!!
1/10 Titan 775 bandit COMPLETED!!
ON the Slash, two rear CVs and we keep blowing the tires apart--LOL. On the Summit, 2 ring gears(as a result of a hobby store tightening the slipper clutch too much, I think), 2080 Servo on 5" tires. Of course the bodies are pretty beat up.
to many plastic spurs gone as a result of matching with a badly meshed metal pinion
front bumper twice, stock servo 4 times in 1 and a half years, and both battery doors. rubber bands hold the battery in pretty well though.
let see some pics! keep it coming!
has anyone tried the integy 3463 billet steel pillow balls looking for some more strength !
before i started reshimming my ring gear i was stripping ring gears every few weeks with the neu power

only thing I broke was axle carrier's switched to GH aluminum and havn't broke a thing since.
Lol. Everybody around here hates Integy. My Integy parts are doing fine. Everyone seems to love the GPM shocks, that's the only thing on my slash that's broken twice. My rear ones have been permanently removed but the springs live on. The stockers have yet to pop open. I have the strangest luck sometimes.
Broke a third ceramic 4mm bearing had to be a bad batch. I took the all out and sending them back
Anyone have ran Boca yellow ceramics 165.00 a set. Might have to check those out!
