Hi Brandon, since this will be your second nitro car you're probably already a good driver. I would say that there isn't much that will break especially if you get your kit now.
These days the kit has been upgraded somewhat ... for example, the original rear shock tower used to break easily. The current kits come with thicker ones.
If you look here
, you'll see that my 2 cars have been stripped all the way at least once. These are the first generation ones and I've only broken things when I have a real bang. You'll se me breaking engines more like it!
