I wish I could say that I found this damage after pulling the car out of a 10 car pile up or that I was trying mod and hit the barrier at 999mph but this isn't true. It was a regular club race on our 24m x 12m carpet track and I was running 17.5 blinky. My car was struggling with grip and I got out of shape coming out of a corner on the infield and another car came round and gave me a love tap on the side. My car slid sideways about 1.5m into the barrier. I was expecting to drive away, this sort of thing isn't unusual but from the rostrum I could see the left rear corner had collapsed and to find this damage I was shocked!

My 417x TQd and took 1st in our second club race today (outdoor asphalt)... it was just unstoppable. No AE car could catch it. Never been more impressed with an RC kit.

Tamiya right on top of the latest trends there.

If only I hadn't sold my old Yokomo MR-4TC or HPI Pro3... I would have had the emulsion shock parts to hand already!

Must be worth a tenth. Although I thought the bladders were worth a tenth a decade ago...
