I purchased the Teton roughly a week ago and It has been a blast to own.I read all the horror stories about shock breaking,motors overheating, and etc. So far(knocking on wood) nothing has happened to it, but then again i do like to go through the mud and water, the scaling side to rc with this truck has been so much fun...which is why it probably hasn't broken. The only thing i wish i could do to it right now is lock the diffs,I keep getting stuck on small roots in the mud and I have to get drug out by another Teton lol. Im already in the process of using a broken servo to use as a winch cable to haul my ownself out of the mud, and hopefully i can find some other cool ideas to take me in the woods for some real fun.

This was my first small scale also. Since it had a brushed motor in it i knew that i wouldn't last long and wadddyakno my motor burned out and i'm currently down. Looking to install a brushless system as soon as they decide to release the aluminum shafts.
i burnt out my motor after 3 uses. traxxas is sending me a new one but i dont think ill install it. might go brushless with cooling system
idk, ive been super lucky then. I have run the Teton about 3 times day since owning it and i havent had anything go wrong with it
i hope so gunslinger. i need aluminum
ya I don't know if they do though sorry
im sure soon enough,everything we are looking for is going to come to a shop we can buy from or some guy is going to try something and it actually works lol
i just ordered the Warn 9.5cti Winch,i cant wait to see how it fits
