Default What did you break this weekend?

I was lucky,
Only blew out one shock. Everything else held up great. My new JP .21FXB5N from Monty ran like a banshee! I took second in the main (lost to my son again!)
Well, how did you guys fare?

Front upper turnbuckle 'cause I was thinking I'm Evil Knievel and need to overtake the leader in the air while flying over a huge jump (14m flight distance)...
Me so stupid...!

this will be kinda a neat thread. Newer guys like myself I am sure break more than the veterans of the hobby.

Didn't break anything this weekend no racing for me. However the previous sat and tues no breakage. Will be racing tonight though. I like a previous poster did manage to spend bucks got Losi 8T 2.0 cant wait to run it. My 8T 1.0 has been flawless and I suck at racing!

P.S. Good Thread!!!!!!!!!!!!

I fought electrical issues all saturday, which ended up being my old beat to hell NIMH reciever pack. Oh well. I got that fixed for sunday and won the main, so it all worked out fine. Other than that nothing broke over the 3 day proseries race. This truck is tough.

Had a Losi Composite shoe come apart about 1 lap into the 30 min Buggy A...the back side of the hole's just let go...and they were pretty new shoes..maybe a race or 2 on them at most.....Truggy took 1st in the A along with TQ in both classes...the 1.75 performed flawlessly...but the real 2.0's did outperform mine on the somewhat larger whoop section where the longer shocks/arms did allow him to get through them where i had to try and single double double double......as he just powered through them....all im all good weekend with some old friends.
