I thought this would help future traxxas owners.

I've went pretty darn fast
and hit some pretty hard objects
and still... I've only broken rear hub carriers, front knuckles, and shock caps.

I did break a rear A-arm once, but that was due to a loss-of-signal on 3S LiPo in -10*F temperatures.

I also broke a chassis over time... from doing this

and this

Pretty much
The stampede will be prone to the rear of the chassis breaking (although a lot less so than the Slash), and the rustler will not. It all has to do with how the chassis attaches to the rear of the vehicle.
It will only break if REALLY REALLY abused, I've only ever done it once.

I think it applies to almost all vehicles, those are some small parts that take a lot of stress
