Default What to break next ?

So here is my setup...
Flat irons cut'n'shut and butchered
proline titus beadlocks
integy bent lower links
losi threaded alum shocks
custom 4 link front and rear
losi frenzy 370 motor (modded motor mounting plate to fit motor )
venom 2s lipos 1320 mah 20c burst and a small 430 mah 30 c burst

this frenzy motor is fast and powerful with the lipos its gonna break something so what do you guys think will bust first ?

stock esc
stock servo (with no saver on it )
stock plastic lockers
stock driveshafts

keep in mind these stock parts have 1 year worth of crawling on them and i cant believe they lasted this long .
next is gc3 chassis and upgrade the drive line. the only reason i didnt get a brushless system is i am fully water proofed and i run in water lots of water .
but the frenzy is fast and torque is good and no cogging at low speed . so im happy . any other input on what you suggest my mrc needs to be comp ready would be helpful . thanks all

yeah I say lockers will break first also. but I do have my slipper kinda loose. frenzy motor stays nice and cool but the stock esc gets warm after a long crawl
I will go with tekin esc and water proof it if the stock esc blows up. or ill go with the xcelorin brushless setup and stay the hell out of the water, I guess

Lockers and servo are your next investment.

I drove mine stock for 6-months besides the servo (3 days) as soon as I put the mongoose in weak-links really showed up fast!

My rear locker broke. Replaced that and 5 minutes later my rear driveshaft broke. I say, why not just replace everything at once? Then there's no downtime waiting for parts to arrive :P
