Default Wild day

Today I was still slowley breaking in my motor running it cooling etc all the pain that goes into breaking in a motor and getting ready to tune it. Well I get home start tearing everything down off the chassis and I get to the servos and I noticed I lost both screws from the throttle and break and stering servos. I had just thought this was wild in the way that one neither arm jumped off either of the servo and also losing both screws. Curious to know if anyone has ever had something like this to happen to them. The fact that something major could have had happend but it didnt.

nothing to do with servos but i was noticing that the screws that hold my rear sespension on wasn't holding properly. soon found out what happens when you ignore it and go over a jump mid race.

not all six screws fel out i took the chasis brace screws out as they were bent.

as for the wing mount
it was a bad day brand new wing mount and it broke in practice before race even started had to use new zip tires every race. lucky i had plenty of them.

but the engine ran great.
