The servo wire would wear through before the dirve shaft, you must have gotten something else in there and it just came out before you saw it, and just assumed it was the servo wire.

it does seem unlikely but strange things do happen.

I had a battery wire smooth a spur gear down in my robitronic to literally a perfect smooth circle but the wire didn't have any damage.

This is a similar problem that many have had with the Yokomo SD. The composite twists and sometimes breaks. I broke one on my SD, and I know TC3 owners have had the same problem. In mod its just too much stress.
