Default Must do mods for durability / common breakage?

Hi all,

Searching around on a few forums, I didn't find a thread like this for the Rock Rey, but if one exists, please let me know and I'll request this to be deleted...

Wondering if we can get a list of "budget friendly do-firsts" for modifications. What I mean by this is, truly common breakage vs nice to have. (I know we'd all love a fully aluminum truck...

So far in my research, I've found:
  • Losi 23T Aluminum Servo Horn (if using stock servo) - TLR1555
  • Larger screws for each diff ring gear - 2.5 x 10mm - Traxxas #2523 (12 needed), will need cobalt drill bit - Avoids sheering off screw heads
  • SSD Rock Rey Third Member - #SSD00177 - Aluminum housing prevents case flex and protects ring & pinion

If you are planning on running 3S, well, good luck. I am not kidding when I say my truck has broken every time I drive it.

I would say Exotek diff cups and probably the metal rear axle third member/front diff housing are a must. Ive blown out my stock rear diff cup and had sheared off 3 of the 4 screws on my front when I went to install a locker.

One of the pinion bearings in my rear axle exploded the other day so the pinion started walking around inside the housing and mess a bunch of stuff up. Bought an SSD 3rd member.

I have the kit version the only problem I ever had was the servo horn came off. Only running a 2S.
