Me and my buddies were at an RC PRO series race and before the A-Main finals one of my buddies had a new shell for his buggy that he had just put a brand new wrap on. After he put the wrap on and showed us how cool it looked, my other buddy pointed out that next time you put a new wrap on a new buggy shell you might want to take the overspray film off first!!!! LOL. We all died!!!!

Left my M11 plugged in to a wall charger till the batteries exploded. Total melt down of the handle and battery tray with acid all over the place. Good news is my house didn't burn down and Airtronics distributor had the parts for a total of 9 dollars.

lol, YES!!!!!
In my defense, i never even cracked the book open to see wth was inside. I was thinking automotive, but, at least i never ran the car and thought, MAN WHAT A PIECE!!! Caught it as i was going over in my head how the car actually works lol. I was bummed though, we were expected to race in like 4 hours, and i had to redo BOTH diffs. Thats another thing, the center diff. is what told me, hey dummy, oil in the spider gears, not on the silly plastic drum!

Accidently starting my Traxxas Nitro Sport(my first nitro RC) in my room. I was trying to figure out why it wouldn't run so of course I was bumping it over with the EZ start, probably should have disconnected the glow plug before I did that..... and made sure the lines were empty.

I can't remember what my parents said but I do remeber my room smelling like nitro fumes for alittle while.

using a dremel + pliers to cut a screw shorter, then putting the screw in your hand forgetting that it's about +500 degrees hotter....

I'm still wondering how the oil even stayed in there, there not sealed to hold fluid, how did it not just drip out all over the place?

I was working at a hobby shop wile I was going to school in South Carolina, and a guy I sold a 60 size helicopter to a couple of days before came in with blood on his hands and clothes. (this is before electric helis) I asked what happined, and he said that when he fired up the heli, it tried to take off and he grabbed the boom and got cut by the tail blades. I asked, "Why didn't you let it go? That's very dangerious you could have gotten really hurt." He replyed, "I didn't want it to hit the TV." Not thinking the obvious I said, "You have a TV outside?" He said, "no", I was in the living room.

I should have told him to bring it back in because he wasn't smart enough to have a heli...

You're right, but he was a engineer (I figured he had enough brains to handle this). And yes, he did buy parts to fix it.
