Default Traxxas XO-1 Destroyed by Curb!

A buddy of mine told me he was taking his XO-1 out for some runs if I wanted to bring the AP gear to film him. It was too windy to fly the hex (like it could really keep up anyway ) so we just filmed from the road. Unfortunately he hit the curb doing 85ish (what gps was froze on when I picked it up 10 ft from car) on his warm up the tires passes... Here's the video

+ YouTube Video

LOL! I guess I should have searched for XO-1 in this forum earlier. That day sucked. I should have just repaired the car.

My ghetto spoiler would have been fine if it weren't for the wind

Yes, that is by far the best XO-1 crash video. I was going to sell mine after I saw that video, but I didn't and ended up wrecking mine too.
