Default New MGT8.0 vs TREE... MGT Wins?

I still jump when I watch this vid, and I've watched it many times..
I had to post this Just Broken In, brand spankin new MGT 8.0.
This thing is a torque beast! It was just broken in a few tanks before this.
Its just past the 1 min mark... Sorry about the quality, its just a digicam...

I also hit this very same tree with my Jammin CRT truggy... Unfortunately I didn't hit dead center of the bumper, but off to the left side...
Busted front lower arm, diff case was cracked, servo saver posts bent over, front plate bent up, and it even stretched out 2 holes in the chassis...
It's all fixed and better than ever and I won't do that again... Or just get an MGT 8.0!

And its my FIRST POST! Hi Everyone!

Haha that is classic. And especially the fact that it took a chunk out of the tree.

Probably would have resulted in 1 or 2 a-arms cracked instead of the whole car breaking. If it was a savage that hit that tree the whole chassis would look like a S.

I personally think most Monster Trucks could have done the same thing and come out the same way...
As long as its dead center... They were designed for that impact...
Not sure about my Maxx...it has surprised me at times but I would think a bulkhead at least.
A Revo or Savage would be fine...
I nailed that tree on the left center with my Jammin Truggy at about the same speed, and had to wait for parts...
Its still impressive to show how durable these trucks are.
