I've got a '009 for sale locally but am having 2nd thoughts. I like how the car works but I've got a problem. It breaks almost every time I drive it. In our 17.5 TC class about 90% of the cars are T2's of some sort, but my '009 is the only one that breaks. C hubs, arms, steering blocks have all broke regularly. The other XRAY guys are shocked mine breaks so easily... I don't get it. Main difference is they have alum steering blocks. Don't want to spend the dough on them if I'm just going to keeping breaking other parts. I spent the money to have tough car.. but this about as brittle as anything I've ever had... maybe the worst.

Some thought it might be the spool so I put in a diff and it still broke. I'm not saying this to knock the car I just have NEVER seen an XRAY break like this.

Any thoughts?
