There should be contract all buyers sign when they purchase that car:
[I]" I, ___________________________ (your name) do solemnly swear to drive this R/C vehicle full speed into my own shins the first time I set it on a public street. If said vehicle does not kill me, I shall:
  1. maintain the dignity and honor of my hobby by laying on the street and driving it full speed at my own head
    2. Drink a full container of Paragon
    3. Turn marshall a 1/8 Nitro race with my teeth.

I wonder if it logged the g-forces of that curb impact and then uploaded it to FaceBook where he got 20 likes and one Farmville request?
