I'm sorry to here all this. I try to keep in touch with Darin and Dan as much as possible. My name is Ron Graciano and I am a Redcat Dealer. If there is something I can Help you with, drop me a message on my website www.squirlyproductions.us
and I'll see if I can answer any questions you may have. My business is Custom promotional printing, certified metal fabricator, and a Redcat dealer. ehroof is right. THEY ALL BREAK. We own 43 acres out in Ocotillo Wells California, and I have had my Aftershock 3.5 running along side my 140 covair turbo sandrail and after the ride she is doing just fine. It all depends on what you hit. Remember, these rc cars are scaled down. I wouldn't want to hit a two foot high rock with my sandrail. I would break a shock mount , bend a rim, or rip out my oil pan. Now if this happens am I supposed to say that Fibertech frames suck. No my friend, everything breaks. It just depends how hard you are on your cars. The only buggy that I messed up was my Backdraft 3.5. I didn't have the failsafe set and she went full throttle into the curb at 30 feet. The aluminum frame had a little bit of a bow to it but she still ran fine. Truthfully, I was lucky I didn't do more damage than I did. I also have a Traxxas T-Max that has cracked front arms that I didn't notice until yesterday. They all break. I want to help you out, so if there is anything I can do for you, please contact me. Talk to you soon.
