Who cares if someone wants to burn an engine then more power to them, it looked to be well used by the wear on the head anyway so why not burn it for the joy. Some might disagree but you guys seem to be flaming him because they burn a new engine when it was broke in the first place, he posted this video to give people a laugh not to have people flame his topic. Im not saying it was funny but like he stated it wasnt even his he just taped it and posted it. He has good youtube vids. Savage ur a cool guy!



i could never smash my truggy or buggy though lol it cost too much.

I can't believe I haven't smashed mine yet. There's been a few times that it was all I could do to keep from completely destroying it. I really love these nitro buggys, but sometimes I want to set mine on fire to0. I'm sure that before it's all said and done I will destroy a 1500$ toy out of frustration. And 30 seconds later I will feel like the biggest ass in the world.

Couple of good trashed cars stories.

Carpet oval race. Buddy of mine had been working on an experimental car for a few weeks but just couldn't get it up to speed. Got so angry with it after the first heat he broke it in half over the edge of the counter. Handed me his credit card and asked me to go up to the counter and buy the 10L kit that was in there. I built the rear of the car while he built the front and had it ready to go in time for the next heat. He won the state championship with it the next week.

Slot car Nationals. I guy decided to try something and write an article about it for the magazine. He spent hours rummaging around on the floor and digging through trash cans looking for parts. By the end of the day he had accumulated enough parts to build a complete International 15 car. Chassis, motor, body, tires, everything. He raced the car and did okay with it (mid pack I think).

yeah its tempting to chase i did it once because it was a friends and i didnt want someone else to snatch his beat ride because i know he cares about it but he was mad at the time.

I've gotten to the point I've wanted to chuck an engine across a field but I've never actually done it..can't afford to replace it so I just keep it and work on whatever the issue may be

I've seen an M11 Smashed off the drivers stand rail and then thrown to the ground.

Lets see, I've seen a truggy thrown in the creek, many cars chucked at the wall in out indoor track, truggies flung into the air. We have some funny guys around here. LMAO.
