View Full Version : Your best wreck
01-31-2001, 02:58 PM
What's your best wreck? I've had a good number of stupid ones, but my best was when I hit a half-buried rock (never saw it coming) at about 35mph. Did 5-6 endos but landed on my feet. It still drove and I didn't realise there was a problem until I picked it up and reasied that my front left wheel was barely hanging on. I replaced the front shocks with the aluminum ones (I was looking for an excuse anyway) and everything was disco.

I wrecked my rustler. I was doing over 40mph and it carries the front end in the air the whole time you are in the throttle, so the slightest bump or anything will send it all the way up on the back skid plate, only it came up so fast and started walking, I couldnt get off the throttle quick enough and it cartwheeled 6 times, breaking the c hub on the left front wheel, but it landed back on its wheels and I drove it back to where I was standing.
Thanks nitro all the way

I wasn't going very fast but I hit a small tree and it cartwheeled about 10 times leaving a cloud of dust.Lucky enough I didn't break anything.

i hit a curb at 50 mph. i broke the c shaped hubs. shock tower front. shredded a tire, my pipe fell off, upper chassis broke, lost tons of screws, lost front mini bumper. i also broke some other parts in the front end. and also the servo steering arms. this all happened cause my controller bugged out and it wouldn't work.
What just happened?

On bout my 9th tank of nitro my car lost reseption and hit a big oak tree in my front yard. Luckily there was mulch surrounding the tree forming a jump, which was a chore that my dad made me do. Anyway drove bout 10 feet up the tree/deformed jump (like a bad half-pipe) and landed on its roof pinned wide open. the crash didn't cost much but it wasn't pretty. I only cracked the body, snapped a shock, broke the antenna and i stripped the screw on the bottom of the shock right out.

Going up a rough hill, and my receiver flew out (I never tightned the zip tie when I took it out of the box) Well, no receiver and the Rustler went full throttle, hit a bump, flew about 15 feet before it hit the first branch 5 foot off the ground, then started climbing branches. Once it got about 8 foot in the tree and its 3rd branch it shoot through and landed upside down and stalled.
Ya ain't driving till ya break it

I also, when I was breaking in the engine on the first tank of fuel, took it out to far and it went out of controll. It hit a cirb full throttle broke the front bumper and slid the engine forward so far the bell and slipper gear didn't touch any more.

I've had a few good ones but my buddy has got me beat by a long shot.He breaks a shock tower every time it runs.But that is't the only thing one day he was going as fast as he could and hit a street sign and it was not a preaty site or sound he broke a bulk head,a arm,bumper,and bent the shock.One wild thing was his chassis was fine.But the body was destroyed...

This past week Me and my freind were driving are stadium trucks. I have the rustler and he has a rtr rc10gt. Well we were heading the the road at eachother playing chicken and as i went to swerve he t-boned my back tire and it broke all the pieces that connect to the turnbuckle and my rear end. That was the worst yet!

this will top some of thoe i live by a golf course so i drive my car out there alot and i was debating on wether to jump my truck of a 15ft cliff acroos a 20ft stream and i was making a test run to se how far i would have to go to clear the water and land somewhat safely and as i was making another test run the battery on my n pede went out of power at almost full throttle it went on off the cliff barely cleared the water but since i could control it in the air to level it out landed upside down totalled the body broke the rear shoke tower almost in half dented my stinger pipe broke front body mounts cracked front shock tower i think i acually got pretty lucky considering it went off a 15ft cliff and over a 20ft stream on to its back

hey this isnt a nitro rustler wreck but i find it funny so here it goes
one day i was racing my fully hopped up kyosho outrage buggy with road hawg tires on a small indoor carpet oval. me and a cupple of my friends and such we screwing around during practac and i was coming around turn 2 caught up to a slowing stock car style racer i bumped in to the side slid side ways and cartwheeled about 6 times down the back strait while i was cartwheeling my battery flew out taking the ESC and recever with it (it was all velcrowed down)i finally ended about 5-10 feet off the track. the best part tough it that nothing broke only the electronics were pulled out i was soo surprised. and the worst part was that it didnt affect the onroad car at all it really didnt even get squrlly or nothin.
i should be getting my N. rustler in a cupple weeks so i know i'll have some good wreaks with that. right now i'm planing out a 3 foot high ramp for it now. hopefully i'll get some good pics of it and stuff so well yeah thats it
