    Big Air

    This is not my video. The Slash enters shortly after the beginning.

    The only thing to break was the spur on the last jump.

    You look at the 5b and then you see the Slash, and even though we all know the Slash is huge, it looks tiny after seeing the 5b. Good ole Slash though. It jumps like a champ .

    Yeah. Ryan (rbgerrish) works at one of the local hobby shops. He has built some pretty awesome crawlers and is a hard core crawler guy. The guys get together every once in a while at the business park for some bashing with their fast RC's. I would like to build a crawler next. They look like a lot of fun.
    I race with the oldies!

    I personally can't see the point of bashing untill it breaks, I mean i like working on my RC's but i much prefer to drive them over and over and come out unscathed in the end and only have to do routine cleaning and maintenance.

    I am pretty much the same way, however I enjoy seeing the extremes of what you can do with your RC's by watching others destroy their own!

    ya never know what its made of until you brake it. then you know where your limits lay. looks like this thing will live through all the torment i plan on giving it without issues...

    where is the fun in that? i mean some of my best moments have been with busted vehicles. had a rusty throw a front wheel off and also throw the body off. and she was pulling wheelies from a dead stop. also my emaxx vid on youtube has some sick 3 wheel action. broke part of the front end and didnt stop. and got some great moments. also seeing my stampede vxl drive away from a crahs with an emaxx with only a broken castor was awesome. i break alot but the i bash harder than most. which is what i love to do. heck even my race rustler gets beat pretty hard. like this past weekend had nothing to do at the track so me an a buggy driver had a little jmup contest. and with my rusty sideways she was getitng sick air. now when my slash arrives i will beat her pretty hard. in fact kinda wishing it would rain today or tmorrow.
