The models I have tested work well, but I don't see high use situations
until the tournaments start.

The Field Setup, page 15, reminds us:

Mission Models – Keep the Models in original condition by straightening and
tightening solid connections often. Ensure that spinning axles spin freely
by checking for end-to-end play and replacing any that are bent.
This is something that the referees are reminded to check frequently.
