It did Mr clean magic erase worked perfect!;)

I was doing some speed runs, when a concrete garbage can jumped in the way. When i attempted to avoid the can there was no servo response. So i went head on with the can and lost, i only bounced back about a foot. Considering the circumstances the nero held up pretty well, only about $200 in damages. Ebay & T/H helped cut the cost down plus extra parts.:cool:

It's always a bad day when they don't bounce. All that energy has to go somewhere.

My first Arrma will be here Friday. I'll have carnage shots to share by Saturday

Carnage is nothing new to me (Total Carnage was the name of my last RC video I made haha)

I picked up the Big Rock. I'm getting antsy, checking my tracking numbers hourly haha.

IMG_20161113_161624715.jpg Not exactly carnage, couple bad ramp launch landings, cut session short. Easy fix, Typhon definitely caught bigger air then the Slash this outing. I'll load some jump vids on media when my son shows me how to do it right Lol...

Nice! Thanks for sharing.
How the he77 do you guys rip your tires, do you just full throttle until you crash? :confused:
Ive yet had this problem.

Here's how mine went. granted, I could have been a little more delicate on the throttle, but I was one handed driving to hold the camera lol.

Plus I still had locked diffs, that's partly to blame for the immediate wheelie.

My son recorded the bad jumps on his iPod, I still haven't seen them, went right to fixing them. I thought it was funny, too. When you play hard stuff eventually gives. I hope to upload videos soon, out of town for a few days. Had trouble trying to load Utube vids, URL didn't work. I'll get her figured out and share soon.

Decided to test out new Mod 1 gearing in my Backslash tonight, running 18/40 with Sidewinder 8th 2200 combo on 4s. Already drove Typhon earlier for a Thanksgiving treat. Ended up doing a 50-60 mph cartwheel down my street after the front lifted while trying to go full throttle. Landed upright with no damage the first go. Tried again under faint street lights only to pull a repeat. This time dug plastic deep into the asphalt and flopped violently, high into the air with gentle snapping noises in the distance. Ouch! Luckily, I only snapped off IMG_20161124_193933637.jpg IMG_20161124_193933637.jpg IMG_20161124_194324560.jpg Losi wing mount and ground down the other along with chunking front bumper. Wing flairs must have flattened for those to even touch ground. Glad it was the Slash and not my beloved Typhon! Think I'll stick to daylight testing when I can actually see the front starting to go North.

This just in, the Big Rock is insane. I lost contol tonight going from a concrete dive to blacktop, and subsequent curb during a speed pass. it's a bad day when the first thing you see is a wheel rolling away. haha.

Looks like I wiped out the rear spindle, a rod end (my first!) and destroyed the wheel bearings. hopefully that's all.

That's a bummer Havoc. I too have watched wheels go rolling off, usually after hitting immovable objects. Good to hear the Big Rock is insane. Was checking out the Outcast today while buying a new wing mount at my LHS. Looks bigger than I expected, definitely sick trick/jump potential. Wheelie bar looked quality.Told the guys there to check out Thomas P's vids on the forum. Might just pull the plug and bring her home, or maybe the Kraton... so many choices. Love my Typhon, but getting the new RC itch for some big tire bashing. Hope your rig is up running again soon.
