Default *Graphic* Traxxas X-01 Crash Rossa Event 2015

This is probably the worst destruction of a X01 I've ever seen. I feel sorry for this guy he's a good guy trying and doing new things. We had a blast at this years ROSSA event where Nic Case himself was there and ran 106mph on 2s.

Why the hell is this titled *graphic*? I was expecting to see someone's head cut off by a flying car. Instead I saw a waste of 30 seconds of a guy talking about a pile of plastic (and the video was 10 minutes long - I turned it off because I stopped caring after 10 seconds)....

Sorry guys no blood, but there was many people at the event with videos of the crash. I didn't get a video of the actual crash. There was so many crazy things going on that day.

Why would someone use a flysky radio while doing speed runs?

That reminds me of this kid I knew back in the day. He built a Honda Accord into a turbocharged track day car and he spared no expense on it to get as much power as he could. He them promptly asked "what is the cheapest helmet I can get?"

It's called priorities....

This is an old thread, but have you seen them with TSM installed? It is quite a bit of difference compared to the original version.
