    Weird MIP breakage

    Anyone ever seen a MIP do this before? I'm only running 2S.

    I've never seen or heard of anyone breaking one there. I've had a set (f+r) on my truck going on 2 years with no probs. I just started using 4s exclusively and so far so good. Contact the MIP folks, I'm sire they can help you out.

    Looks familiar

    Only at the 'right' angle of impact

    Don't get discouraged by it though, I have MIPS in both my Slash 4x4, and Stampede 4x4 and they have seen lot and lot of abuses. They are great.

    One of my bash partners did that by running into a cinder block wall at 87mph. You have to really smack into something extremely hard to break that. Unless it is really cold, that might weaken the metal.

    I went with the Tekno too. I didn't realize you loose the aluminum hub carriers because of the inner bearing size. Not a big deal to me, but to some it seems like a deal breaker. I have read that the MIP's are super strong but a bit heavier than the Tekno's.
