Granted its more likely to get damaged by crashes, water etc.

I lost a gear on the rear derailleur because it shifts the derailleur 3/8 of an inch outward, but peddling is useless above 15 mph anyway. Losing the gear might because I did not dial the adjust the derailleur very well also.

I thought I didn't need it until I was startled by a truck that pulled out in front of me and my stopping distance way increased by my not cutting the throttle fast enough.
i found the brake cutoff to be dangerous in heavy traffic situations so as a backup my main cutoff is on the throttle in case of runaway.

To be honest I was running a lot more power before I put the torque arms on (7kW+ burst) and I had zero problems. Granted that was without regen, I would tighten the axle bolts down as hard as I could and I regularly inspected it.
But yeah torque arms are just good insurance if nothing else.
