Default 6x6 durability?

N ow that these have been out for a while, have the issues they had when they first came out been resolved? Are these still experiencing issues with their center axles stripping out? Has anyone had any issues running these with more power than the stock motor can put out? Overall have people that have bought these been satisfied with them?

Mines been rock solid so far, no issues with the center axle

I am running a Trailmaster 550 21t, so not insane amounts of power.
Its a really fun truck for the trails.

I've never had an issue with the center axle stripping out and I'm running a Trailmaster 550 21T as well. I did lose the driveshaft between the two rear axles and the snorkel ripped out. The body has cracked in the front by the grill (weak lexan) but that was probably more due to letting some 5 and 6 year olds drive it around the ranch unsupervised. Come to think of it, that's when the snorkel ripped out the second time and I never found it.

While I don't have axial 6x6 I do have a cross rc hc6. The middle axle gears see allot of use due to the fact it is being driven and a drive axle. I have had to replace the gears in the middle axle, when I did I checked the front and rear and I had very little wear.

That is a great looking truck, eyeing for a future build. Set of gears cannot be all that bad $$ or service wise.

I ended up pulling the trigger on one, its been great for the 15 minutes it ran until the stock servo stopped steering. Bought a reef's and have no doubt this truck will be great.

I'll start working on mine soon. Haven't even powered it up yet, but I've already got some stuff lined up to do for it. I'll have to see if I have any issues with the middle axle as well.
