  • Second hit - More of the same
  • Third hit (a little harder) - Cracks appeared
  • Fourth hit - Results shown in pictures

These wheels are pretty stout. Hope this helps.
Rod--I need the part number for that TRF hammer. Must...have...all...Tamiya...tools...

And if you want to really torture-test something, let me run it. They don't call the dogleg gore point the "Tom Slick corner" for nothing. And it's not a fast lap for me if I'm not launching from there and getting good air under the car.

Kevin, you have got to get some decals made up with that logo. It takes Team Panda to a whole new level.
Meanwhile, I will still think back wistfully to the days of the Malachi Crunch...
