Default At least the chassis is in one piece

The last time I wot wrecked a car there wasn't much left either. This one was a blow over wheelie at around 70mph. Even bent the motor mounts.

I still picked up the 2nd place trophy that night. Enough of the car crossed the beams to register a run and the other guy flamed about half way down the track. But I couldn't answer the call for the final In fact it was a few weeks before that car made another run.

I hit the cinder block wall square on at full song.
There was nothing left and I think the marshal that was standing there pee'd down his leg, lol.

lesson learned, stronger return spring needed.
You need these.
