Prior to upgrading my shocks and turnbuckles, I used to either blow a rear quarter shock cap or bust one of the rear turnbuckles' rod ends. (I think I blew three shock caps before getting AE shocks, and busted 5 or six rod ends prior to getting Lunsford Tn Turnbuckles and some beefier rod ends.)
Well its been a long list of broken parts but the part I broke the most was the forward primary gear in the trany. That is until I got the Robinson Racing gear set. What can I say the O.S. just chews them up and spits them out And now I'm haveing the same problem with my Fantom There goes more $$$$$ to the folks at Robinson Racing
I've been lucky. I haven't broken much, except on those run aways when I first got my Maxx I broke the front skid plate, and bulk head. I guess that is axpected at top speed into a 6 inch tall concrete curb. Other than that my shocks ave taken a beating. I rebuilt them once, and I was looking at them the other day, and they are trashed. Bent shafts and all. Hoping for new ones this time. Maybe some Powerstrokes.
Well when i had my maxx i was blowing bulk heads like crazy.I think 5 or 6 sets fount and rear..then i up graded to ga's 7075 bulks no more probs.
Then it was the stock shocks so i up graded them to the big bores.with blue and black trinty springs. skid plates broke a hand full of them so i up graded them to rock hounds ti skids full set.Then there was the (pos) 2.5 went through 4 of them. finely got a good one on the 5th try.Traxxas was pretty much done with me after that.then all the other normal stuff blowen diffs,spur gears.ect ect ect......and my wallet was broken to because i could not shut it because it was full of recipts
