    Some video from a bash...

    We put some cones out, fairly close together, and then were trying to thread the needle at high speed. I made a 55 mph pass and got through it. Then figured I could do it faster and stepped it up to about 80 mph.... and shattered a cone.

    Well that was fun, and unexpected.... so out came the camera, and then we were trying to hit cones at high speed. Its harder than you might think.... putting a rc on a dot at high speed....



    Then....we're doing the usual high speed passes. the grey ghost wins this race, my slowpoke Slash is bringing up the rear... when the McLaren in 2nd decided to blow over in front of me...



    I had time to react.... but at maybe 70 mph, its not like I'm going to slow down a 2wd slash much... so I tried to get by.... and kakow!

    Smashed the McLaren, the Slash lives to fight another day. The grey ghost (that other XO-1) did pretty well, won several rounds.

    I brought out the XO and my Slash.... I don't see my red xo in the videos much, but I was running the Slash more that day.

    man, that would do more damage than it looks. but these trucks are tough, and will continue to be.
    All I need now is to set a new lap record.

    While I still wish the skirt didn't have as many pieces.... it does do a great job of protecting the car. My XO is more durable than I expected...

    And the Slash taking out a GTP? Thats awesome... but Slash's are tough as nails, and I hit him square on the wheel...

    That was a fun day. None of the captured cone explosions are as good as that first one you hit at 90! We need some Nerf cones next time.

    Ps -1 on xo-1 durability

    That was pretty wicked to watch at those speeds. Makes one realize how tough they truly are!

    I think he went on vacation and his inbox is full or something.

    I've got a rip like that. I thought mine was from a combination of really thin tread and the body getting flipped under behind the rear wheel and draging on the tire.

    I think they tear across the belting overlap inside the rubber.
