    Angry 1:8 custom back to 1:10 scale pede... (mega ticked off)

    wrecked bad.... was nearly a total loss.... pulled all my spare parts because because of upgrades and was able to rebuild the 1:10 stampede... was able salvage motor, esc, spoiler, cage mainly the back half of truck.

    to help save face (since you are a member here)...i will be vague but make my point.... well, family member one, was having fun "egg-n" on family member 2 with my (how was it said) "super fast RC"... well, Fam 1 lost control and crashed in to fam#2....

    problem: fam#2 was driving a 54" ridding mower... sorry no vid wanted to kept his shallow grave a secret... (kidding) the fact that you "pede" (pun intended) your pants when you saw my face and you know that I will have my revenge soon keeps a smile on my face and your shorts damp....

    NEED/WANT INPUT:
    Looking for suggestions on new "project" since I have the chance to be creative again... please share.

    Someone in his family who is a member on here broke his truck by running into and probably under a 54 inch lawnmower. He had an 1/8th scale Pede that is now 1/10th scale from the rebuild and wants a cool project to re-build once again.
    Some like R/C's that are fast, others like nitro

    I understood what he said, but what was still what came to mind.

    I think I would be asking for a little compensation on the crash. By the way, that is one NASTY looking Pede!

    hide your remote when not in use and lawnwork/dishes/house cleaning/yardwork/painting a wall/cleaning the bathroom/cleaning the garage/being your maid::set values to all of these or just a time like 6months and when he reaches it your paid or make the parents pay::which is the legal way if he is under 18 parents are responsible for cost similar to if he broke a window

    That is really terrible when kids or even adults use items without permission. Especially when it's something dear to you and it gets destroyed!

    i'm more upset about the use without permission than anything else... the damage, I have done almost the same amount of damage in my normal use and doing something stupidly fun... Helicopter drops (like skiers do), jump off a 30 foot drop, crash into a parked bulldozer or a hit a no trespassing sign at top speed, etc...

    If he had asked I probably would have hi-fived him for finding a new way to BYT... issue was with the madmax set-up I can easily do 40+MPH if that hit my 3 year daughter it probably would break a bone since it hit hard enough to dent the steel cutting deck on a mower....
