I looked at the truck, specifically the 4th set of twisted Traxxas VXL axles, and can actually say I'm glad I sold off the brushless stuff and returned it to stock. Truck is pretty bulletproof stock.
Metal tranny gears, 32p spur/pinion, steel drive shafts, LiPo battery, and Brushless system = Bullet Proof Truck!
Actually its only tough cause the plastic flexes instead of breaking. Watched the entire rear bumper assembly twist from a 20+ ft drop and it just popped back into place. Crazy. I wouldn't put any other truck through that and expect it to survive.
One of these days I do plan on fixing the rest of my fleet. Someday. Until then I'm gonna Bash my ECX Torment and Ruckus till theres nothing left. But I do miss Racing Nitro!!!
