It's by Team Associated. It's their nitro touring car. I got a tip from a driver at our track. He said to boil everything for 30 min and it should help with the breakage. I boiled the knuckles and arms and drove the crap outta my truck last night for 2 heats and a main and nothing broke. I will upload the video sometime today to youtube. I would suggest boiling at least the knuckles and arms. When I first got my truggy I broke both knuckles the 1st day. Since boiling them, they have held up fine.

I have heard of boiling, sounds like a recipe for disaster if not done right. Once the waters boils, throw them in for how long?

I did mine for 30 min just to be safe. Make sure you bring the water to a rolling boil and take out all screws from the parts. Plastic only. That way they will actually "roll" in the water as it boils and move all around. This keeps them from sitting on the bottom and possibly burning/melting.

I'm running the stock springs from the CRT.5. They're a little softer than the stock springs, but it's better for my track.

And no its not the driving that caused the vehicle to break if thats what some are thinking. This truggy is just not built that well. Period.
I beg to disagree with you. I've taken my truggy off insane jumps to flat landings, done double backflips, front flip attemps, and failed, and much more, and it's still in one piece! I'm running an 18T pinion on my Hyper TT and that seems to be the sweet spot. I was running the 14T pinion at first, but that didn't give enough speed. I'd got to an 18T if I were you.

I agree, its a very tough 10th scale, really takes a beating before breaking anything. I also must add that I dont trust somebody complaining about durability who thinks hell get more speed with a smaller pinion....

I have a 10TT on the way, should be here Monday. I also got a MMP and Novac 4.5 from a guy on here to run in it. I read about 30 pages of this thread, but my eyes are getting tired, so I'm sorry if this has already been covered.

What gearing should I start with?
Is the 4.5 too much? Should I go with a 6.5 or something like that?
2s?
3s?

Let me know what you all think would be best. I also have a MMM with a 2200 motor I could always slap that thing in there. I like speed, but must also have torque for the triples with a short run at it.

NO reason to get nasty, I was just asking a question.
Besides, Its not just me complaining, 3 other friends have the same vehicle, and their all breaking the same parts.

Default cold

Is it cold where you are running? May have something to do with the breakage.
