    Smile My Fail Today

    Well I was driving my rusty at about 50+ (not top speed) and by the curb and I was looking at my car and not what was ahead. In my path was a big trash can on the street and I slammed into it, and broke my rear
    a-arm tats it. What saved my car from being destroyed is........RPM bumper.

    So I 110% recommend the RPM bumper.

    Been there done that haha. Check the front pins though, the ones that connect the front control arms to the bulkhead. Hard front impacts tend to bend those. Check the rears too if it broke an arm

    Check for bent pins in front. I tried racing next to my curb once and I brushed it. Damaged new rims and flipped me on my lid. Kinda cool to watch.
