    Broken part on Slash 4x4

    Hello Iím new to the RC work. Bought my first real hobby grade RC car about a moth ago now. I picked up a Traxxas Slash 4x4 from my local hobby shop local being 20miles away now. However Iíve been enjoying my slash and been doing a lot of bashing with it and my 7 year old loves it to. Now we have a small problem I had a hard crash with it last night and noticed it wasnít steering right all that well. So I picked it up and nothing seamed wrong. Battery was dead so we went back home after further look I noticed the arm that steals was broken off. Will be in picture of what it is. Not familiar with all the parts yet.



    That arm is bent is there ones that are more durable and what exactly will I need to get it back up and running. Thanks in advance for the help.

    Not exactly sure what part you are referring to but these exploded views should help you....once you figure out the part name post back and we can help you figure out if there are better options than the stock piece. Good luck!!

    That's the rod end.

    Which arm is bent? It looks straight to me. You could get the Rustler 4x4 arm which is a little stronger than the Slash.

    Oh nice they are back in stock at Jennyrc thanks for the heads up. They were out of stock for like 2 months when I wanted to buy mine. So I settled for amazon.

    We likely read the same problems people have the RPM rod ends but that is what I want to hear from the part best used as a breakpoint since it is super cheap. I rather break a rod end than bend a rod or break the tab the rod end is bolted to. Just my opinion tho.
