Well it's not Offroad, it's Oval but yeah

when you try to avoid and accident and the body gets stuck under the rear tire

then you get hit and the batteries come out after being slammed by about 3 cars


Happened to me last night.

i have one too....

racing proseries race second heat and half way down back straight,hit a very small stone, car cartwheels,turn marshal gets out of the way,car flips over barricade and tumbles into creek and lands on tires with water up to the engine. all of this happened in about 100' ...not so much of a "kick it" but, pretty funny story.

Kicked mine this weekend. I spent all week preparing the car. Car handled great and the track was a little wet too, only gonna get better i thought. I ran 4 maybe 5 tanks in practice and the engine flamed out. I checked the CB bearings, they were done. No big deal, pop some fresh ones in. Maybe 1.5 tanks later, another flame out I bring the car in and try to fire it back up, S.O.B wont even idle. CB bearings still good, plug still looked like brand new, and i looked over every inch of the fuel system. Car was sittin on the starter box on the ground and i field goal kicked it right in the wingstay. Needless to say the engine (O.S. VG) got canned right there at the track not long afterwards, but thats an even longer story.

The only people I've seen kick an RC car were the spoiled kids that never paid for anything.

Alright, a long time ago I had a crap Nitro Sport that I eventually converted to a rustler. I hated this thing to death, I can't even come up with a story to tell. The same part breaks 10 times from tiny crashes. Build quality sucks and car sucks in general. Receiver antennae breaks/cut and can never go farther than 50 feet without it becoming possessed. It goes on and on. So basically, kick it, throw it, leave it in the garage for a year and get a sweet truggy, and sell it to a cheerful guy, and forget about it.
So that's my story of the wannabe traxxas stadium truck. I'm not ripping on the company, but I think marketing and money got to their heads to much and the biggest RC company turns out the worst cars. My buddy runs a revo 3.3, and he likes it, but it breaks all the time and is just a pain. So I guess I just had bad experiences with traxxas, but I won't buy anything from them again. This is comparing a revo to a truggy though...even though the revo costs more.
Enough with my rant....Kick it!
