    mini revo coverted from a slash, 2s lipo, 6 months. I've only broke the front bulkhead, but.... I've popped more driveshafts than I could count. I solved that problem with traxxas cvd's when I converted to a revo. Now I'm popping the center shaft on occassion. As soon as I can find a steel inegy shaft in stock that problem will be solved as well.

    another slash to revo conversion

    as a slash: left rear a arm
    as a merv: both left rear and front a arms, stock ESC, rear body mount, bent the slash spoiler out of shape, so now it touches the rear wing (kinda cool looking), numerous stock drive shafts and bearings (the bearings would jam, generate heat and melt the shaft ends), SEVERAL axle pins, both halves of the front bulkhead and a chassis. and my front and rear skid plate is pretty well chewed.
    ... oh, and sorry about your wallet

    2s lipo and Nimh

    Broke 5 carriers - 3 rear, 2 front and Im being nice not ruff, the stock carriers are the weakest RC part I have ever dealt with I can barely get a full run in without one snappin and like I said Im being nice. I also had to glue the stock tires back on but thats not uncommon with BL anything not beadlocked. Oh and grinded the front body mounts down from a bit of lid time. I have only ran this truck about 10 times- but I do love it, if only I could get it to be able to finish a run without breaking and not have to dump $$$ into it to do so.

    Anyone with ideas on axle carriers that will hold up for less than $20+ a pair let me know.

    What a killer little performer though, its a blast to drive.
    That's Just How I Roll o==o>

    i believe that your sterring servo is out. easy chk is to unplug the sterring serve from the reciever and see if the car works.

    What can I say? I support both lhs and skatepark. Since we are talking about broken parts and all. I've been using stocks. My friend broke an rpm arm and they won't replace it! I feel better spending 5 bucks instead of 15 everytime 1 arm snaps. I just bought out my lhs merv supplies
