Hello, me again

IF anyone has alloy parts or knows about them i'd be very keen just as a matter of upgradeing, i have broken the back left arm once but it was totally my fault and bad driving, but if anyone has that would be great, i'm also looking for the rear and front metal protection, i literally bumped a tree and honestly not hard and it cracked so i think till i learn how to control properley i should get metal...
email me as before on naviuk@gmail.com

Thanks
Pierre

well first it rolled over and broke the rear hub then i hit a small curb (not fast at all) and broke the front door hinge and hub. ive had cars from wal-mart hit harder than that and only scuffed the body. i really like the cars setup and it is easy to fix i just dont understand the plastic snapping thats all.

It's true that the hubs seem to be a weak link in these trucks....but one of the main factors this time of year is COLD WEATHER.

what you newbies need to know is this.. Most companies wont give you any warranty at all.. the minute you put a drop of gas in them it's over.. These are off road.. R/c toys.. and to get 30 days is great.. but good luck getting any warranty from any r/c company if you smack it into something and gas has been run through it.. come on guys!... Thats the facts period.. get over it.. and either take your time and learn how to run these. Or.. put it own your shelf and use pledge.

Well I got my rear axes holders and ran a few tanks before it flipped somehow and broke a door type mount. It boke right at the bottom where it pivots on the front lower arm. I was able use a bit of super glue and a couple zip ties to hold it on and its as good as new. I think I will zip tie the other side for added strength. I thought this could be useful to someone.

well thank you very much for the sarcastic info buddy. maybe the "NEWBIES" are just trying to find out some things about all of this. i hope the other people in this forum are not as rude as you!!!!! and by the way here is a very famous saying " The only dumb question is the one that is not asked." so thanks again

Marc, I have to agree with you. Ask away. In time, you will be giving people advice. This forum is to learn on not to judge people and make comments.
