Broke a control arm a couple of days ago. My daughter and I were running the truck out in the street and I hit a small patch of sand on the road while turning and skidded into a rock. I've cartwheeled the truck a couple of times and so far this is the only thing I have broken. I got the new arm installed this morning and all is well.

Before the next snow storm hits, took my Ruckus out before the temps drop again. Between the large dirt pile, large snow piles, soft dirt and lots of mud - I somehow managed to bend a shock shaft. Not sure how that happened, cartwheels, backflips from bad jumps, drops onto pavement, couple of runs up and drop from a tree, or my moneys on the tarp catching the truck and making me miss the dirt pile and sliding upside down into a large branch which got jammed and wedged into the rear suspension. Maybe.

Next day (today) decided to replace the bent shock (I keep alot of those Traxxas shocks in my personal inventory so no problems there) so no issues. easy as apple pie, after replacing the travel limiter so I don't destroy my MIP driveshafts, I did notice the front OE shocks seemed a bit light. Figured after all I've put them thru they must be oil-less. Seemed like it, no dampening what-so-ever. So I changed the water they call oil to a quality Losi 40 weight and realized there is no difference in shock action. Maybe its me or maybe its the ECX shock design but OE water (I mean oil) VS. 40 weight Losi oil made almost no difference in shock dampening. In fact the Traxxas shocks with whatever oil they put in them from factory seemed better then the refreshed ECX shocks, IMO!!!

Either way atleast my Trucks back in one piece and ready for warmer weather

running in mud is fun, cleaning the mud is not fun. Finding a tire completely blown off the rim but held together with mud even less fun. Finding the foam is still soaking wet a day later, no feelings good or bad. Means its time for new tires/ wheels. So maybe a little fun.
