    How did I lose...

    the battery hold downs for my E-maxx?

    I must have left them on the ground at the park or on the trunk of my car and drove off.
    I broke it out the other day and they are gone.


    dumest rc part you've ever lost.
    GO.

    lose body pins like mad
    few months ago went to the hobby shop bought like 40, and need a refill already [:@]

    Other things I've lost are the nut that holds my buggy rim on (forgot to lock tite it on my 1st run spent 2 hours looking for the tire [:@])
    lock nuts for various RC's when I take off the rims
    pins for the hex's, and a battery hold down bar for a brama 10b....

    can't think of anything else I lost

    RE: How did I lose...

    i have lost the exhaust coupler on my savage, i must have hit a stone or something because both zip ties had gone, didn't really notice a change in noise (i was having too much fun)  
    also half of my tire went skyward during a high speed field run, that caused some problems.

    its all stuff i had no chance of knowing when it would go, but its stuff you don't think about :P

    So glad to have a savage again. Time to make it handle less like a savage.

    RE: How did I lose...

    I lost an entire RC car about 6 months ago... me and some friends were bashing in a near by park, we each had like 4 cars out that day, I drove off and left a b3.
    Her name was Lola. She was a show girl.

    RE: How did I lose...

    Antenna tube (I run FM). Just the other day - saw the antenna dangling after a fun tumble, couldn't find it. That was weird - I've never had one come entirely off before.

    Found it yesterday though. Win!

    RE: How did I lose...

    lost a whole rc car. forgot an associated b4 in a hotel resort in france. found it on my front door step: hotel sent it back to me
    most annoying thing i lose is body clips. i put them down, and never find them again. this got so bad that i ended up buying 10 packs of body clips last year, and i lost 3 of the packs...

    RE: How did I lose...

    I lost a pinion gear off a nitro once.

    Seriously. Honest to god I was driving along and the engine just screamed instead of moving the car. When I got there the clutch bell had one pinion and some threads where the other one was supposed to be. That bell had about a gallon and a half on it, so I'm not sure if the pinion exploded or if it unscrewed.


    Spur gear was intact and there was no shrapnel.


    It was first gear, too, so I had to replace it.


    Other things I've lost include tons upon tons of body clips, body posts, all sorts of misc hardware(Half the screws that are supposed to hold my CEN together are strewn about my yard), had a pull start fall off once but I was able to reattach it, lost a fin off one of my cylinder heads, and I've lost my favorite AA-accepting glow ignitor I bought as a backup in case the sub-C one was dead.
    My stash:
    1 rally modded NTC3, 1 HeliMax Axe CX Nano, 1 Hobbico NexSTAR.

    RE: How did I lose...

    1. Lost LVC, was driving around my df02 in grass, doing jumps ect and the runtime felt longer, i just waited and waited to hear an alarm. When i put the lipo on the charger, it was like 3.02v per cell. Almost lost a new lipo to then.

    2. Lost half a differential. I opened a differential near the kurb in the carpark and the diff balls in the gear and the thrust bearing rolled away into a drain.

    3. Also lose body clips.

    4. Driving my touring car and at 50mph wheel nut let loose and the wheel was never seen again, remember the sparks from the screws on the bottom of the chassis.

    5. Lost my pride when beaten by a newbie driving a redcat [:@]
