Putting in my new VXL into my Slash, having it "thermal" according to the manual after 15 feet, gear it down, charge the battery, does it again. WTF.
And neither of my other RC cars (MGT 4.6, CEN car) are working.

Unfortunately, as I came around the same last corner, I'm still walking along the edge of the track towards the stand, messed the corner up and suddenly my own truck is flying through the air at crotch height. Fortunately, I managed to get my leg in the way before I got hit by my flying rig. I ended up with a broken A-arm on the rig, a badly bruised knee and my mates laughing their A$$' off at me having tried to kill myself with my own car. Miserable buggers still give me grief about that mistake. Also have had the end pop off the diff oil bottle as I think everyone has been caught by.
yup ive done that before, trying to get the diff oil out faster and end up getting half the bottle out real fast and over flowing my diff like no other lol

Default Run AwaY!!!!!!CoRNER!!!!!!!

Scott, La Nitro Open 2008

Picture this....... qualifier #3 at the end of the night last run you know......im in the lead with half a lap on the field. While going down the straight away
3/4 i let off throttle and motor is still pulling.......tap brakes, no response, turn left no response..befor i can scream at the marshall the truck is upside down in the air (having hit the pipe at the end)and smashing into the fence wing first. Finally after the motor (new o.s. speed in it's first race day) popped
the marshall got to it.
After further inspection the battery had just enough play in reciever box to crack the connection from switch to battery and backed out.

Can you say aGHHHH WTF
