    I did the same thing. Smashed into a rock and the batteries were not the same shape coming out as they were going in. I threw mine out in an e-waste disposal drive. I think it's possible that they...

    I considered a steel spur when I did the steel driveshaft upgrade. Ultimately I kept the plastic for the exact reason you mentioned. I think it's the last bit of protection for the motor if you hit...

    If you clamp down too hard on the ball joints in the wheel carriers, that can cause issues. It looks like you have replaced the a arms. Maybe you were over enthusiastic in reassembly?

    So if I remember correctly from my materials science class, a static load on a properly designed spring should have no bad side effects. In this case, properly designed means that the metal alloy...

    Maybe it's just the lighting and the image compression. It looked like the front edge of the a arm was lower than the rear edge.

    Little detail I noticed in that last picture. The top a arm seems to be out of alignment if you look at the front and back hinge points. Did it rip out?

    I was thinking that taking the rocker off its main hinge screw would give some play in the suspension, allowing the axel to pop out.

    Fascinating failure mode. I'd almost venture a guess that the drive axel popped partially out while under power, and the interference between the axel and drive cup is what forced the ball retainer...

    I'm not sure if you would get any factory support from traxxas since it's a used car. That being said, it's pretty easy to clip off the existing connectors and solder on some new ones. That can open...

    Almost sounds like a loose connection and the battery circuit is being broken temporarily. If you wiggle the power wires will it shut off?
