View Full Version : My first crash...Hit a mailbox post!
Well Hpiman,seem we both like connecting with mailboxes.I drove my usual run,3 houses up and turned around and hit the gas.Next thing I knew I was heading off the road.I slammed into the Mailbox post 2 houses up.First thought was how much $$$ damage,second thought was I had pulled a Hpiman stunt.When I walked up to get it I found I had hit the post square in the center with my front bumper.Didn't even put a scratch on the bumper.I must have been doing 15 or 20 MPH.Now you talk about LUCK!I guess I will fully extend my transmitter antenna next time!
Ouch, it probally did more damage to the Mailbox, then to the Buggy, lol!!!!

OUCH!Well I was lucky on this one.The chances of someone hitting a post exactly the way I did is slim to none.The post was square and I hit it flush in one side with that bumper.I really didn't check the post out that much,I was worried about my buggy.But I didn't see any wood hanging loose.
