    First big damage crash, suprised it took so long!

    Most of the damage to the truck so far has been regular wear-and-tear type stuff, like breaking the stock A-Arms, wearing out the body, wearing out and breaking stub axles, etc. In-fact, it's pretty amazing the stuff i've been able to do to it without any real damage:

    But at the end of a day of bashing, I was finishing off one of my 3s packs doing some speed runs while my friend got it on video. There is a really great wheelie in the video! On the last pass, it hooked to the left when it wheelied and ended up dead-ending into a wooden platform.

    RPM Shock tower (the pieces I could find):


    I bent both front RPM A-Arms. One shock snapped and tossed oil everywhere. The front RPM shock tower was obliterated. I broke a C-hub and a bearing carrier, and one of the screwhole/mounts for the shock tower on the top of the front diff case snapped off. The metal bolt thing that holds the clip for the battery tray snapped off right at the plastic hole. Ironically trying to get the remnants of that bolt out of that hole is the hardest repair so far.
