I notice you have a 3PK radio, but an Airtronics receiver. Ithought those were supposed to be incompatible....it wasn't a glitch by chance that made you hit the car was it?

If not, what crystal were you using in theairtronics receiver, the Futaba or Airtronics crystal?

They're incompatible on 72mhz. They won't glitch, they just won't work at all.

On 27mhz, they're compatible. If you look real close at the pic, it looks like the Receiver is a 27mhz unit.

I always get a kick out of seeing this old photo. It was my NTC3 after a traction roll in Toledo's always super high grip track. I pulled the body off and the rear shock tower and both rear shocks came with it

I know that's a 7-cell brushless setup but 60mph? Sounds like an exaggeration to me.

Remember what they say about strengthening parts by replacing them with aluminum? Its something about how they will just transfer the damage to another part of the car. In this case everything has been beefed up but the chassis itself and that is obviously where all the impact force went to.

Amazing picture though.
