    Dang!!!! Good lord you hit something HARD!!!! That's an excuse to upgrade more parts. That's the way to look on the bright side of things.

    There is an elementary school 5 min from my house that has an awesome dirt yard due to trees limiting sun to the grass with a huge open dirt ditch too jump. We run there all the time i was wide open to make a jump and caught the curb with the right front. I knew it was bad when I saw the a-arm under the tire.

    You've got me beat, I was trying out some speed runs with my 4s and somewhere around 55mph, pulled full throttle and all 4 tires lost traction and the truck torque steered into the curb. I broke an a-arm and a shock body.

    I left some pretty nasty marks on the curb, and a nice oil spot from the shock oil. Check out my thread, pics and story are in there.

    I did all that last week hitting the timing system during a race. Seams those RPM arms aren't all that. Didn't even find all the pieces, it exploded.

    Well Steve, at least you'll have a clean truck to work on this time.
