I have ran my 501x anywhere between 75 -90 times racing + a bunch of practice. I have broken 1 arm, that is it.
As any regular at OCRC could testify too, I am by no means a clean driver.
My experience driving before the 501x consisted of about 9 races with a B4 in Amateur class.
This thing has taken countless hits with no effect. The broken arm was due to my battery dumping and I became a sitting duck for another buggy (4wd modified) to clip me at FULL speed.
The 501x is bomb proof. My buddy's 501x has been raced WAY more than I have had time for, he has yet to break a single part
. This is not an uncommon story among 501x owners.
They are beautiful looking cars to boot!
