Sorry, get out your reading glasses!
The other day my boy was bashing his 2x4 and he yells "DAD!, It stopped!" I quickly saw that the battery was unplugged and it's hold down bar was cracked (xl-5 model w/bar and 2 clips), which I thought was strange but I have xtra's so I plugged him back in and clipped the batt back down without removing the body. So tonight I'm working on his 2x4 pede. He's almost 7 (spoiled i know) =) The thing started out as an xl-5 but I built it into a vxl for him. He runs a 5000mah 20c 2s venom lipo.. I figured I'd re-lube the gearing tonight cause it's been a while and we've been bashing in slushy/sandy/dirty conditions. So while watching that new "piranah" movie I took the whole rear end off, did my thing, and put it back together. I figured I'd take her out for a spin.....Didn't even make it out of the garage when I noticed the steering was lame/sluggish, etc.. Upon closer inspection I saw the steering servo case is cracked off it's mounts, the front bulkhead is cracked @ one of the mounts and the chassis is cracked @ both points the bulkhead connects to it. I didn't even notice it while I was working on the rear! and if yo've seen the new Piranah movie you wouldn't blame me!...The car is Totally Wrecked BAD! I played it cool and asked him what he hit the other day. He said "Remember? The curb?.. Turns out he didn't just lose a battery in a bad flip but smacked a curb probably doing 40!.... That's my boy!
