if you have never poped a ball cup,you just don't drive fast enough. i don't care who you are and what you drive, your just going to break once in while, these guys who say well i drive this and it has not broken in over a year. if you believe that, well i'm sorry but you are gullible. And this is not coming from a driver who breaks alot,i rarely do, but from a logical stand point.

And losi are not cars to slide around they have the most rear traction of any cars out there.

Default breaking parts

hey guys i have only been bashing with my trucks and broken a diff gear in each one . got a t4 yesterday and am worried it's going to break also. but that's the price you pay to play.and we play hard. i run mamba max with the 7700 and it is wicked fast on nimh bats, but on lipo it's insane.

i break before i pop lol im not fast enough with a 9x1 . your rear traction is probably quite true but how do you get a car that has a ton of rear traction to rotate in a corner? you gotta make it slide/brake some traction. slightly loose in a corner is better than "glued" particularly if its a sharp turn where you need to get back on the throttle asap if rear end isnt in the right direction yet you cant get on the throttle as early and if it is way too much rear traction it will be a bear to turn anyway.

yes ,but you don't have to slide them to get them to steer.

Ive had my CR where the rear wants to pass the front end a lot of times, so Ive had to dial steering out.

Default it doesnt matter

Well it doesnt matter. I got a LOSI MF2 but thanks for all the info. I drove the truck for the first time last night.. I kinda had it geared to high though and smoked my 19T Ohh well just turn it or stick in anotherone ... but It was great to drive I really like it so far.. It is kinda funny though. I am going to my first off road track tomorrow to race wish me luck... I thought it was just practice then my buddy was like nope its a club race... ohh well I have pretty good throttle control..
