    Haha, preliminary inspection shows I need: a left rear driveshaft, rear wheel, rear deffuser, left aero plastics, rear lower control arm, front aluminum c hub. Im sure once I tear it down ill find more. It was my own fault. I didnt ease into it, i went for it, and there was a lump in the blacktop I didnt notice... It was all over from there.

    Im hoping to have it fixed for under $300

    300 is a lot better than buying another car

    Made a video of the damage. Forgot to mention the rear wheel is cracked in half.

    Unfortunately, this video has been removed because of a rule violation. Making references to alcoholic beverages is not allowed on these forums. Please try to keep all content family-friendly. If you would like to re-post the video without the reference, please PM me with a new link.

    Too bad it didn't go back in time to the moment before you started the run... could have saved you alot of money. Maybe next time upgrade to the traxxas flux capacitor BEFORE doing speed runs.

    i reckon its not too bad considering the speed - can u imagine the damage to a normal car - it would be an insurance write off

    LOL! I keep forgetting how much moderation is done on this board! It's cool though so kids can browse the forums without their parents having to worry too much.

    Parts look to be coming more readily available. Prices are pretty cheap too. May be able to get it fixed for less than $150.
