    Sheared off a locker side output, and 3 mind after I took it out of the box on flat ground. The and the bearing behind the pinion on the rear duff just chewed its self up and dropped all the balls into the duff and they got stuck in the ring gear.

    Yep. Locking side just sheared off in the front. Silently, not like the stub shaft in the rear axle :SNAP: traxxas sent me the part for free for the diff. Fantastic customer support!
