I drive the dang WHEELS off it, make boo boos and such, but I've never actually BROKEN anything before. He broke two zip ties holding my ESC in place, the four zip ties I had on the battery, broke the upper front bulkhead carbon fiber piece and ripped the body off the rear mount. All because he "Missed" the catch ramp, and used about "50%" of the throttle to get it there.
It slammed top/body first into a board that was set up as a "Shield" to protect the spotters in that back corner.
So from now on, if anyone asks to drive it, I'll ask for a $100 deposit, a credit card number, and I'm limiting the throttle to 10% so a nitro guy can have a few laps to "adapt"
