lol, Okay so had to share the carnage.... I lost concentration on bashing, ten minutes in to first pack (with 3 full charged in my pack ready to go) and unfortunatly I was tryin to do some crazy turn past a curb, and it was a mix of break in concetration, and loss of traction that lead to this... Estimate... 70 dollar damage. lol.
Im totally changing to RPM front bumper. Also, this was in part due to the RPM front skid plate. Partially my fault, and partially its. Heres why. Were in not for it, the chassis would have survived. Also, for it to properly do its job, u need to put lock nuts on the 3x12 bolts, one has to screw in to the chassis. I was doing this on the left side, but the right side needed to have that on/off switch mount, dremeled to have room to do so. I had started to use that lock nut, but adding and removing my servos when getting things right, I started to slack on that, and put that on my to do list. I also had been making sure to use the 5 the screw,and that led to the destruciton of the chassis... Ul see why Also, the skid plate on the front, (and rear) has its little notches for support on frontal impact. Using a RPM front skid, thats no longer available since its longer. Because of that, it also didnt have that extra bit of support... Which lead to my bulkhead moving back to far, and SNAP! But above all else.... It was the curb!
But here it is!
Heres what I mean, on that RPMS 5th screw and its cost of not takeing the EXTRA steps to reall support it.
*btw... U can totally see the fibers in the plastic in the Traxxas chassis. Pretty cool
