    Actual drive line failures are not very common on this vehicle. That doesn't mean it won't break though, like any rc vehicle if you drive with no control, eventually something will break. Its always a good idea to drive within ones capabilities as well as the trucks capabilities!

    If you are asking if you can hammer on it 24/7 running 6s all the time and it only breaks driveline components if you hit something or try to self right, then for the most part absolutely. You'll still have a freak incident here and there but it's pretty good to go. I got mine when they first came out. Only driveline related things were one center shaft(8$ or so), and one set of spider gears(that ones on me, I let the diff bearings go to long I think.) Its good to go. Don't self right and you should have like no issues. I have had a pretty low KV motor in mine most of its life, and I am a major throttle hog. It's legit. No worries.

    Deja vue any one? I feel like we've had this conversation before! To the OP, ALL RC VEHICLES WILL BREAK! No matter if it's a $200 RTR traxxas or a $600 kit that doesn't include electronics. When all is said and done, if you beat on ANY rc vehicle 24/7 it will break. Maintenance is a key factor on prolonging breakage and finding a small problem prior to becoming an expensive issue. If you happen to find an rc that can be driven pedal to the metal all day every day, that is a hobby grade rc and is actually enjoyable and thrilling to drive, please by all means let us know.

    I know of one. You already have the basics. Now add everything m2c makes, as well as some custom mods and you'll have a virtually unbreakable rc. I'm getting there.

    Check bearings, monitor motor/ esc temps, check pillow balls, rod ends and rotate axle cups (this prolongs the inevitable "notch " that will develop)

    Right! I actually haven't taken her out in a while. Need a new body and figure out the electrical issue.

    Aren't electrical issues the best? I bought my first hobbywing product ever, an ESC for the Xmaxx, I have about 10 packs through it. It dies about 20 minutes in, won't even start back up. Wait a few days, works perfect for 20 minutes, dies again. It's currently on it's way to Hobbywing north America in Los Angeles. Fun fun.

    Use throttle control to avoid ripping up your tires, especially on the street.

    Ha, that's my neck of the woods! I've tried hobbywing, while I didn't have major issues I don't think I'll go there again. LVC issues and I couldn't keep the fan working for the life of me which led to over heating. Hope it gets resolved for you.

    Facepalm! By no means being disrespectful...but our peers on here have answered this question over and over again. Bearings, pillow balls, temps both ESC and Motor need monitored, drive cups flipped. After every run good general hobby maintenance is key. Just check stuff over...look for anomalies, warn parts screws backing themselves out and so fourth. I am not sure what kind of response you want. These are RC cars. You get them, drive them, break them, fix them, drive them and biggest key is HAVE FUN, learn and help others......

    You have asked enough times under your previous username and were warned about it.
    You still continue to ask the same questions.
    Please stop this compulsive behavior.
