Well when it hit the edge of the lawn it flipped up into the air and landed on its lid. (Mind you i didn't have the body or the wing on)

so i turned the truck over, and the shock tower was bent to hell, the rear chassis brace broken, and my rear center drive shaft was bent. Pretty sweet first outing.
Cant wait to hear about the second outing.....should be even sweeter.

I have to say tho, if you're going 35-40 mph and hit the edge of a lawn enough to send the car flying thru the air, it was obviously a RAISED edge. I cant see any RC going thru that unscathed.

Walked over and flipped it back on his wheels and off he went

So far the little guy took 2 pretty rough hits......100% stock 10TT just boiled all the arms, carrier and knuckles.

I dont think this little guy is the toughest out there by any means....but I dont think they are made of glass like a few guys make them out to be either.
I've read about boiling the suspension parts before, sounds like a good idea.
I have also ordered T-Bone Racing's front and rear bumpers.....with a 9 yr old driving it, you can never have enough protection.

The lower the turns the higher the kv, smaller turn means faster.

My TT would jump nose up all the time. I tried a little design change and moved the battery tray up 1". This thing now jumps perfect and I gained a ton of steering.

Are the blue springs softer/harder than the orange kit springs?

Go check BBQ's setup in post #2002. followed it and ran it last night and truck runs, turns and jumps great. just needs clay suburbs tires.

tekin told me the RS is not good for a 550 motor. you should use the RS PRO

Use a small pinion with that high kv of a motor. Keep a good eye on the temps. Might need a fan depending on your driving style/conditions.
