Default Learned a few lessons!

That's right, I kinda broke my Jato more than once. The rear shock tower broke which I bought an aluminum replacement, today I was playing with it and I put a piece of plywood up against a flat bed trailer, right next to the tounge. Needless to say my car slipped off the side of the ramp and ran right into the tounge, breaking the bumper completly off, breaking the left suspension arm, and bending one of the turn buckles. This is a VERY expensive hobby, and irritating one as well.

Maybe you shouldn't run into trailer tongues then?

You might break lesser parts if you run it on off-road conditions. Running it in streets or in cement would maybe increase your chances in breaking parts because the surfaces are more solid, therefore breaking your jato's parts easier. And maybe also how you drive the car.

Try running your real car into a trailer tongue and see how expensive that is to fix.
