    Wanton destruction is neither new nor creative.

    lulz.... I was "jumping" mine the other night, but we're talking less then 12 inches of altitude here... and the smack it makes when landing... is cringe inducing...

    This is actually a fairly impressive video. Gotta admit I've wondered how something like that would go....

    When I think of all the people, myself included who would love to have an XO-1 but find the price just a little too much to afford and then see someone abuse one like that it is kind of upsetting. In the end it is not my business what he does with his car but I dont have to like it and I darn sure dont respect it or see anything impressive about it.

    omg ... thats great ...

    i actually wish they would have made the launch side a little better instead of having it go into the drainage ditch part then up the ramp... it would have held so much more speed

    i wish the person who did the video would have posted it here...

    i agree it is total unneccesary destruction... but .. hey its his/hers to do as they wish with it ..

    the.. " that was crazy cool" ... factor applies to this .. LOL

    he/she can at least say.. "i jumped a dam with my XO-1" ...

    the "cool" factor for me is that someone actually said... "hmmm i wonder what will happen if i run it up that dam over there?" and then went and did it

    kinda like the "cool" factor behind any crazy idea... like Evel Knievel doing all his stunts he did... sure he didnt land a lot of them cleanly and sure he broke a ton of bones ...but it still had the "cool" factor

    I wonder if he had it unlocked because his speed was sad. I'm sure he's on here lurking, get a clue dude.

    "Seemed like a good idea at the time" was what was probably going on in his head after he jumped it.

    That or peer pressure from the camera guy. "Everybody's doing it", "Your parents won't find out" or "I'll post it on YouTube"

    Most of us bash our RC cars to bits, dont really see the problem of jumping the XO-1. It`s his money

    My problem with it is that it's not a clean jump and there's no possiblity of landing it.

    I agree, if I was going to smash my car up on purpose I would have tried something a little better. I'm not saying the dam jump wasn't something I haven't contemplated seeing those cement puppies now and then, or certain spots on the Los Angleles "river". Maybe flip out wings, some rocket boosters a fire ring or something

    Looked like the RC equivalent of "Will it Blend" from YouTube.

    What a waste.

    you'd be suprised what this car can take, I had a 75mph 3 meter high, 10-15meter crash jump that nose dived on the splitter which flexed and sent it into the fastes, nastiest 30-40 meter cartwheel I have ever seen and only broke the front splitter and a rear A-Arm. I was watching and waiting for the impact that shattered the car into a million parts, amazingly strong!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    are people seriously upset by this? I'm sorry I'm not getting my blood pressure up over this. Isn't this what we do with our Pede's, Slash's etc? We literally try to see how much they can take and even know going in to a jump, or obstacle that we are probably going to break something. But it's ours, and these things are money pits anyways, yet we still knowingly run these risks. This video made me gigglefart for half a second. We've all done dumb things with are cars, because they are ours, and we'll do what we like with them.

    I didn't clean my cat's litter box. Does this upset you? This is all dumb, just do what you do
