I think you need a new camera or learn how to focus it.

What exactly did you hit, because no "bump" into the boards would do something like that... you had to smack it a ton! Wait till Josh get's back from Brazil and talk to him...
I can attest to the fact that when Greg hits something he hits it HARD!!!!

One thing that I found and recommend is to prethread the holes in the graphite front arms. If you don't the graphite will split (you may not notice this) because there is very little tolerance in the holes so the screw actually does its job. It does say this in the instructions as well.

Actually I've talked with Dan since then and he's in the process of working things out with the car.

Untl he suffered the damage he was in shock and awe at the speed that the car carried and how well it handled.

A comment was made a while back to let the thread die but peolpe keep bringing it to the top.

Let the thread die..the situation will be resolved and everyone can just move forward

My .02.

I have been racing since the mid 80's and looks like your front end break is just like the first 12th trinity revolvers. The tension is what causes that damage. By design you run that risk. If you are so hyper sensitive to those types of issues I cant believe your not complaining about you irs breaking the battery position holders. Now thats a poor design.

Crashing.......No Good

Anyone else find it ironic that it's been mentioned several times on this page to stop posting in order to let the thread die?
