I was re-meshing a pinion to spur on my truck and forgot to turn it off.It glitched full throttle and took a dime size piece of skin off my hand,the blood amount was insane.Anything bad happened to you guys or anyone you know?

Not REAL bad, but it tickled. I was marshaling and some guy lost his crystal, I saw where it went and proceeded to try and get the crystal back in and get him running again. Oh joy when it picked up a stray signal and went full throttle with my thumb just over the spur. The "kickback" from acceleration forced my finger right into it as I was holding the vehicle w/ one hand and not ready for the jerk (of course I was the jerk for not anticipating this). He was stoked about being back in business, probably not too happy about the blood dripping over his shell though.

I witnessed a turn-marshall get hitted at the end of the straight by an 1/8 scale pan-car.. Knocked him off his feet, broke his ankle.

Last time I saw that guy at the track..

Sliced my thumb open two nights ago when i was trying to get a bearing out of my aluminum hubs for my 18R because the company was too stupid to build the hubs correctly, i should of had the hub in a vice so i guess im kind the stupid one but who knew a pocket screwriver could slice my thumb open as it grazed by my thumb, its not like i jabbed it right into it. Its all good know, still want to email the company and tell them of there mistake.

I dropped a soldering iron and caught it again in mid air. that hurt. I caught it near the handle though, so it didn't burn too much.

when I was fiddling with my revo I managed to rest my hand on the exhaust. ouch, did that hurt too.

as a 13 year old, my first time marshalling a nitro car i grabbed the car and flipped back right side up, but i had my hand on the exhaust (i picked it up on the sides , i didnt know better lol) i didnt notice the pain until after i got back to my marshall position, and MAN was it a bad one! I didnt have an ice pack to put on it at the track, but I had a big, cold, soda with ice in it, so i spent the rest of the afternoon with my hand jammed in a cold root beer from Mcdonalds. Now I always wear oven mits
