Default A good day of bashing but not for the WALLET!

what are some of the most expensive things you have broke while running ur nitro.

Mine was today i jumped my lst and landed on the engine had enough force to break the chassis, snap the engine open, crack the fuel tank, and shatter the radio box, oh and chassis braces. Im hopping its not going to be too expensive to fix but it was well worth it.

Wow. That's just... wow.

I bow before your destructive skills. All my horrible breakages are boring things like A-arms or hub carriers.

Whoa... i think that's the definition of write-off.

On a side note... most of that will buff right out won't it? if it doesn't... sticky tape will surely solve all your problems ! :P

Default Nice!

At least it was a Mach 427 engine, Those are shit. Now you have a good excuse to upgrade everything!
Or start over entirely, which might be cheaper.

I think it may be time for a new ride. LOL. That's some serious damage. Can't say I have seen one that bad before, and I have seen some gnarly sh!t!
