    Broken axle carrier

    Hey all so I bought a used 1/16 erbe and almost immediately broke one of the rear axle carriers, iv done the swap on my 4tec but this seems a lil more complicated and I can't find any exploded diagrams on the traxxas page I was wondering if anybody could throw out a link :-) also any general insight on it would be appreciated Thanks in advance

    Very simple.
    Remove the wheel.
    Unscrew toe links.
    Unscrew pillow balls (count the number of turns so when you put it back together you don't have to worry about toe or camber)
    Remove pillow balls from broken part

    Follow directions in reverse with new part.

    Dacaur pretty much sumed it up. I would also recommend HR or GPM aluminum axle carriers/knuckles. They will hold up a lot better than the stock.

    I would just go for stock the first time. I have never broken an axle carrier in 7 or do years of owning my mini Revo, now converted to a summit, but there are other people who go through them like candy. It all depends on your driving style and to some extent, other upgrades. Like driving at a skate park would increase you chances of breaking one, as would having stiff aluminum tie rods/for links...

    My upgrade policy is this. If I break a part. I replace it with stock. If I break it again within 10-15 runs, I upgrade it. So far only my arms (rpm) servo, and servo saver/steering bellcrank (alloy) have been upgraded.
