finally got my slash put back together after replacing the front bearings and doing a few other things. got it outside. made it 50 ft before it went on its lid. car that must have been idling before i got outside decided it was a good time to back up. backed over the truck... crunch. i was running arms waving. pulled forward... crunch. car pulled away... they must've known something was up as they drove 50 ft, stopped for a moment, then drove away.
the only reason im going through all this- broke a shock cap, bent a shock shaft, and broke the front shock mount. there's a chip in the chassis, but it's still plenty functional. thats it. drove across the middle of the chassis. twice. i love this thing.
im ordering a summit tomorrow morning, but this experience reminds me why im keeping the slash too... that was a $20 accident!
