possably a locked up bearing

hmm, i don't see it... ( end sarcasm ) :D

Its probably after a cartwheel or you hit the tire hard in a roll over or something like that. A siezed bearing will lock the wheel not break it like that...

i beg to disagree sence i have done this 3 times myself at racing speed if the bearing locks up it will and has rip your wheel off the arm per experence

Congrats, you were a lot quicker to find it than some other people I know. :) It is not my truck, and his bearings did not lock up either. I am guessing he hit something, or did a nasty jump because he was rounding a turn and the wheel just popped right off and rolled to me (I was marshaling at the time) I know the bearing was not shot because he did find some tires for the main and drove fine.

looks like a pro-line rim also should have used a traxxas rim instead.

If it's an RPM rim then maybee contact the company. I didn't think there wheels were suposed to even do that!

IT IS NOT MY RIM! Plus it was already said that it was pro-line. :)
