Good to see nobody was hurt, and the tire stopped in rather than flesh or metal. The irony is it hit a truck trailer with crushed wreaked cars

I think the worst part of the video was the grammar. Spelling and punctuation in the responses was a close second. Knowing that there's one less 115+ mph r/c car on a public road may be the best.

Thats how LiPo fires start. I hate they still allow LiPo's of that size to be made without a hard case.

Default Paint job

At least he didn't waste a lot of time on the body's paint job. Curious as to how many g's on impact.
