Angry Stripped a-arms!

Ok, I went to the track yesterday to break in my CV-R on my new TC3. Well, I touched the wall SLIGHTLY and and noticed the car kept fish tailing on throttle. I brought it in and saw the the rear upper pivot ball had stripped out of the a arm. I replaced it and got back and got through a tank. After further inspection in the pits I noticed that the rear pivot ball had stripped out of the lower arm and I broke a rear hub carrier! All in all, I had one big crash where I broke the front bumper but that was the only thing. The other times were 1/2 throttle touches to the wall. At the end of the day I broke rear upper a-arm, lower a-arm, hub carrier, and front bumper. 3 total tanks.

Did you guys have this problem with the pivot balls stripping out? Should I get the graphite parts? I am seriously bummed out on this car. I thought that the parts durability was top notch but I never broke anything on my RS4 and I crashed ALOT.

I've never crashed in to walls, but other cars have hit me pretty damn hard. Nothing like that has ever happened to me

The new fixes just have hex shaped heads rather than older flat head screw shaped fixes, Jerves(or what ever that guys name is) said they would be available anodized blue.
