not yet, i jump some pretty big stuff too. i honestly have never broken a suspension part on any of my offroad redcats and only broke a rear hub on my lightning while on the track and kissed the wall at a pretty good speed. come to think of it i have never really broken much, only a rear arm on my jato when i had a tire blow out and i clipped a tire on a parked car. if you land your jumps correctly you wont break anything and you just have to check out your rc's after every couple of tanks or runs on the track, it saves alot of headaches in the long run.

lets see i have broken the front mount (2015) twice and i shaved the gears off the big spur gear. the front shocks are bent and even the chassis is bent up(hit a curb) Pissed me right off i jumped off the sidewalk and i lost controle. So now Im playing the wait for parts game lol. But so far i cant say that a traxxas really would be a better car as far as value goes. Im happy with it. Just have to stock up on parts.

I like the way the two wheel drive is but i need to get some tires that will grip better. Prob around the 250 mark somewhere in there.
I plastic welded my controle arm up today its as good as new now. How often should the diffs be greased?

once in a while bro, not that often, it depends on where and how you drive, alot of offroading, and dirt driving it would be a good idea to clean and re grease the diffs every 15 tanks or so.

they are good but need maintaince, periodical sanding to take off the mushrooming from the edges sometimes. for low maintaince go with teflon shoes.

Well I thought I was getting teflon but when they came in the mail they were aluminum. I just ordered replacement shoes and I got metal ones I just wanted to make sure they were not garbage.

How tall are the rustler wheels on your tsunami?(tire and all)

the foam is probably messed up in the tires. It falls apart fast.

Ok ehroof said to put the rustler wheels on it and when i was at the hobby shop i noticed that there really tall. Is there another setup that works good maybe a bit shorter than the rustler wheels? I want something that will grip in loose dirt and fine gravel alot better than the stock tires.

I'm sure he ment just the wheels (back Only older models) Tires are somthing different and I think you were probably looking at the anaconda set up on the newer Rusty and there to tall. You have a 2.2 wheel and the new rusty has 2.6[&o]

ok i dont know why I always hav problems withis hobby but here is my new problem. I put everything onto my os cvrx and when i put it into the car the pull starter was hitting the plastic between the steering servo and the shock tower. No big deal i took my dremel and shaved the plastic away to make clearance. I have the thirteeen tooth bell and 47 tooth spur(I made my own single speed) with the engine all the way to the left or drivers side lol im barely getting the gears to mesh together. So what happens when i get my single speed direct drive with the smaller spur gear on it? Im not going to have enough room for the gears to touch eachother.
