    Just sharing the carnage... Oh My....!

    This isn't about a Redcat product, I'm so glad this wasn't my Backdraft 3.5....., but I just wanted to share my misfortune a few minutes ago.

    35+MPH into a concrete Block isNOTa good thing guys.......LOL


    Well, I desided to see how my Nitro Sport ST would run on my new 15% N. 18% oilfuel mix and after I got-ur tuned up real nice it works great.....runs like a champ.....or at least it did until the sun got in my eyes and Ilost track of where the truck was pointed at WOT........!

    Oh yeah, Ifreak-in nailed a concrete block at full bore and it was not pretty, busted bulk head, busted shock, busted caster block....that sucker stopped so quick and cracked so loud Ijust started laughing because Iknew Ireally trashed some stuff this time.........LOL

    anyway just wanted to share my big wreck of the week... well back to the work stand this one goes....dang-it!

    Peace

    RE: Just sharing the carnage... Oh My....!

    I do that kind of stuff just about every time I take my trucks out; I always come home with something bent or broken.
    Unless you go to a track which most only allow buggies, shortcourse, stadium trucks there's really no open area place I run my rc's in my location and there's always some kind obstacle or solid object around where I run.
