Default Trophy Truggy Flux constant issues

Hi all

As the title suggests I have a trophy flux and I have to say that the failure rate on this thing is pathetic. So far in the last three months I have replaced three diffs, a broken shock, two servos and almost everything else that moves.

Now I have no issue replacing parts if I legitimately smash them, but this thing just falls apart its pathetic. I wouldn't mind if I replaced diff gears once or twice a year but at this rate I'm replacing them every second battery. Mine is second hand, so I expected a few issues, but my friend got one at Christmas and his brand new one failed even more than mine, he just sold it today for less than a third of what he paid for it, because hes sick of replacing critical parts after almost every drive.

Has anyone else had this amount of issues with this model or are we just unlucky? Any HPI reps out there feel free to chime in.

i too have had nothing but problems w/ my trophy truggy flux . it took seven weeks to get a part, this after it's 1st run ever. it didn't even last the full battery runtime, and it started to sound like a chainsaw. as i right this , i'm again waiting on parts , after having just replaced a rear axle that snapped just in normal driving, then after fixing that , it's first time out, it broke again !! this time it was the front axle that sheared. i wish i could say i'm hard on my vehicles, but i'm not. i rarely do jumps because i'm afraid of what would / could happen. i know stuff is going to break sometimes , but this is beyond ridiculous. i know i'm adding insult to injury , but i don't even bother requesting warranty parts , i just have been buying them .i can't take walking by it for weeks at a time, as it lays in pieces waiting on parts. never again w/ HPI.
