So I drag my girlfriend to a lot of races, I know crazy but anyway she goes out to marshal as they're short people. The race starts and there is one truck driving like a bat outta hell, barely in control. Halfway thru he loses it and launches over the berm off the track. From this point he can't see his truck and my girl goes to try and marshal his truck. Instead of sitting tight and waiting he pins it all outta control trying to get back onto the track. Well he pins it and runs straight into my girl's foot. She is pissed and kicks his truck! It sails ten feet and lands upside down. At this point she is really hurting and is pissed so she goes over and picks up his truggy and flings it back onto the track. Man all I can say is if he did that to me I would have thrown his truck as far as I could away from the track after I stomped it to death. It was pretty funny to watch though. This was in pro truggy class, so you would think the guy would be smart and realize he really needed to be marshaled. Kick it!

This isn't an off road story but still an entertaining one. I just bought a 2nd hand (near new) G4s and spent a whole load of time and money hopping it up and setting it up. The day came to give it it's first test drive. The car started pretty easily and everything seemed to be in good working order, i took it off the starter box and put it on the ground and let it sit for a minute. I pulled the throttle and it took off but then stopped about 10m away. Thinking my failsafe in my spektrum had kicked in i started walking over to it to inspect the problem. Just as i got about 2m away from it the thing just took off like a bat out of hell. It went in a straight line and looked like nothing was going to stand in it's way untill it hit a ditch and got airborn then carrered into a net ball pole causing a LOT of damage .......................I would of kicked it but i was to busy trying hard not to cry

I came from the nitro off-road scene but I did find a funny on my other heli site (Helifreak). This is the definition of "kick it".

It's noteworthy to say that the guy is flying a $500 Align 450SE so some mistakes, after tons of prep, can be stressful.

Careful of what you ask for. Sometimes they kick back.

year ago i went out and got a jato 3.3. broke alot of parts on it so i turned the hole car aluminum. Got a roll cage for it and everything. Spent alot of time tuning it. got it running in the 60s. got bored one day so i decided to hit a jump with it at top speed. sounded like a good idea at the time. i hit the jump toped out, car started doing alot of back flips b4 landing upside down on steel water pipes. shattered the roll cage, and messed up the whole car. bent the chassis and everything. i got so pissed. so i through the car across the lawn

Wow.

I understand why it happened though.

Jato is a piece of crap car.

Even with hop ups.
