Default TC3 graphite chassis strength

I want to get the graphite chassis for my TC3 but i don't know how easy it will break. Has anyone broke one of these? Please inform me if you know if these break fairly easy.

Thats what i figured, The chassis should be strong enough to handle crashes but I kinda figured the a-arms and shock towers would break after my driving. Thank you for the confirmation. If anyone thinks that the chassis isnt strong please let me know.

From my personal experience, it's almost bulletproof, but the shock towers, even in a low speed hit break, I suggest aluminum ones, I couldn't afford em at the time(garbage the TC3 :P) but it ran for about a year before I trashed it, and that was with a modded tower I made :P
