Default break

i broke a asc 1015 servo and a hitec high speed high voltage tianium geared servo. a radio tray, rod ends, ackerman, v-spec, fuel tank, two bodies, and lots of screws.

i have never broken a part of that buggy until then. that had to be the hardest packed track i have ever seen.

i did not race but watched all saturday and heard from the vrp crew three servos on 1 car and engine mount,witnessed a gas tank and right front shock tower and the a reciever box. none of the cars were able to race the a main due to NOT HAVEING A HOBBY SHOP ON SITE WITH PARTS.
had some one brought a truck load of servos and engine mounts they would be a well paid man today.

If there was a hobby shop there selling parts, they could of retired of that race!! I have not been to 1 race that so many engine cases broke not counting all the other parts. On the other hand the track was fun just hard as concrete!

In no particular order:

Losi 8ight 2.0 RTR:

1. JR 9100S - throttle servo
2. JR 8711 - steering servo
3. Engine mount screws (all 4 top screws came out.)
4. Front bulkhead
5. Fuel tank where the clutch bell almost wore a hole in the side.

AE SC10

1. Stock motor
2. Rear chassis plate.

Just ordered about $100 worth of replacement stuff!

Between the three buggys and one truggy in our camp the carnage equalled 2 engine cases, two clutch bells, three fuel tanks, three servos, a radio tray and about 8 months worth of wear on a brand new chassis $$$$$$$$$$
