3rd time running the truck on 6s, level soccer fields, no jumps, 37 F degrees, just long straight runs across the field. Hit a rut and the cartwheels began. Here's the aftermath:

I guess I'm lucky it wasn't worse. This is a heavy truck and cartwheels normally don't affect my savage flux, but I'm beginning to understand the limitations of the Nero. Hopefully RPM will start making parts for it soon. Seems like a popular break point from all the post I've read.

Yup tore front arm away from hingepins on my fazon, one of the first few runs, I did jump into a tree though, and the front right took most impact. This is not a point and shoot truck, its way to heavy for that. It needs planned behavior im finding out.

I don't understand why they didn't leave extra webbing in the arms like on the Kraton, Talion etc. First thing I was worried about when I opened my Fazon!

well then it would just sink to the center of the earth LOL kidding, the weight is good IMO, stays planted and really goes. I have a Rival for throwing around.

Needs heavier shock oil...mine did anyway. A 14lb truck moving this fast needs good suspension tuning
