you can do the spit test, put some spit on your finger, wipe the head, if it sizzles off right away or within a couple of seconds you too hot, if it just sits there you too cold, if it evaporates in like 3-5 seconds, your ok.

u know whats fun? rolling ur buggy in the grass. not like a hardcore rollover. just tipover. and the antenna breaks off and u drive like 10 feet away and start to nail it and it goes out of range like 10 feet away and rips down the road wide open and hits a curb bounces off and hits another one and sits wide open with the pipe off, but not moving cause the mesh changed because the chassis bent and u run to it from like 100 yards away and u reach in to crimp the fuel line and u touch the red hot clutch bell and burn ur finger pretty good. then go and buy $70 worth of parts just cause the antenna tube is to brittle. so beat. i wouldnt recomend trying it. so now im gonna invest in a failsafe. its so worth it. also if any one wants pretty good rims buy smartech rims. they took the full blow of the impact and didnt even crack. it just bent the chassis. i was surprised that nothing on the front end broke. redcat just needs to make a thicker chassis and it probubly would have rolled away. oh yeah it hit so hard the battery holder shattered. and the exhaust flew thru the plastic and made a nice hole in the plastic. the pipe was on so tight u couldnt even move it before i crashed. so yeah. atleast the parts arent crazy priced like other companies

instead of writing in the fast reply box at the bottom, click reply on a post and there is a link in the new box that says upload picks. Its at the bottom of the new writing area.

WOW- I bent 2 of my chassis's from hitting things full bore-but nothing like this
You can straighten the chassis-just take your time
I blew the side off my new Tsunami and all I did was take plumbers goop ( that's the name of it) glued plastic inside the body and when that set up just put the goop on the outside of the body and painted it

What you could do is after you get your new one in, you can drill new holes in the old chaises and the new one and add the old chaises to the bottom of the new one then you would have twice the thickness.
