    Tornado vs Curb! top Speed!

    This is what happens when you misjudge the distance of a curb at top speed! [&o]

    RE: Tornado vs Curb! top Speed!

    I did something similar to that. Except I forgot to put my antennae out. And went out of control and went flying at a high speed and smacked into the curb head on. At least my body shell didn't get messed up because I had it off for tuning adjustments. The front part of my chasis is bent up at a 45 degree angle. Here's some of the vital parts that I needed on the part list I just got done ording.

    front bumper
    chasis
    dogbones for left wheel arm and front shaft
    arm support pad
    front differential casing
    steering set A or servo saver whatever it is
    and the upperdeck piece

    so much for my first time with a nitro. And still a half a tank to run for the first fill. Then again I was originally going to run it in the mountains rather than my work. Glad I didn't. Zipp it full speed off a steep cliff and see a minature mushroom cloud.

    RE: Tornado vs Curb! top Speed!

    Question...........


    Took a closer look at the car today after I was having trouble going straight. The glue on my rear tire is gone and the wheel is slipping causing the nascar like action..

    What is a good glue to use to fix this?

    Any type of prep for the wheel first?
