    Broke my first part

    Snapped the part that connect the bumper that connects to the frame. Thats what happens when you roll it down a 30 ft hill.

    I just bought the plastic piece again because I miss judged a rock. Next time I break it I think I am gonna get the RPM on it. I also used some RC contact cleaner and sprayed off the truck cause I went through some nasty snow, dew, and ash because they just burned weeds out of the ditch. Got to clean the motor next!

    I replaced both of mine with Revo RPM mounts... lowered my body while I was at it.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Ya. I noticed that since it isn't a true crawler and the way the shocks are built in with independent suspension, it leans bad on side hills and has bad body roll. Still awesome and fun though!

    Thanks Man. For some reason I thought they would be metal or something. I am gonna have my friend who makes prosthetic limbs try and make me a Bumper Mount out of Polyethylene. It might work, it might not. I guess I will find out!
